MEETING OF TRUSTEE COMMITTEE ON BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS 
July 16, 1973; 10:30 a.m.; University of Massachusetts at Worcester 



PRESENT: Trustees and Trustee Staff : Chairman Knowles, President 

Wood; Trustees Croce, Crowley, Haigis, Pumphret, Sullivan; 
Acting Commissioner Bloomberg; Treasurer Johnson; Secretary 
Patterson 

Administrators, Faculty, Staff and Invited Guests : 

Office of the President : Mr. Kadzis, Counselor O'Leary, 
Vice President Robinson 

Office of the Secretary : Assistant Secretary DeWolfe, 
Ms. Eichel, Ms. McMannis 

UM/ Amherst : Director of Planning Littlefield, Assistant 
to the President for Liaison McCartney, Professor Progul- 
ske 

UM/Boston : Acting Chancellor Hamilton, Assistant Chan- 
cellor Rawn 

UM/Worcester : Mr. Roth, Architectural Consultant; Dean 
Soutter, Associate Dean Stockwell 

Campbell, Aldrich & Nulty : Messrs. Luebkeman and Mendell 



The meeting was called to order at 10:15 a.m. by Chairman 
Knowles, who stated that she had been given a brief tour of the 
campus earlier in the morning, and that she was pleased both with 
the progress being made and with the design of the buildings. 

Chairman Knowles introduced the subject of Temporary Stu- 
dent Housing (Doc. T74-001) at UM/Worcester, and asked what earlier 
background discussion of this matter there had been. President Wood 
and Trustee Pumphret explained that this matter had received discus- 
sion at the May 23, 1973, meeting of the Finance Committee. 

Chairman Knowles then asked Dean Soutter to present the 
proposal for consideration by the Committee. Dean Soutter said that 
the proposal resulted from the fact that space for temporary housing 
for medical students is available on the top two floors of the new 
building, and that a need for such housing exists. He said that 
housing in the area is difficult to find, and that medical students 
should be near their place of study and work. He asserted that the 
temporary space would provide an interim solution for the housing 
problem of students and would provide revenue for the State.

UM/Worcester —

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Dean Soutter was questioned about the possibility of alter- 
native solutions. He replied that student housing on Wigwam Hill was 
lot funded, other University buildings were committed to other uses, 
nodular housing was considered and rejected and other alternatives 
were not apparent. 

Dean Soutter asked Chairman Knowles if she had seen a 
Letter written by Trustee Abrams favoring the proposal; she replied 
affirmatively, reading his statement that he would like to support the 
iocumentation for the need for the University to help in building 
student living quarters, asking that the letter become a part of the 
record of the meeting. Chairman Knowles further informed the Commit- 
:ee that she had received four letters from students, also favoring 
:he proposal. 

Trustee Pumphret stated his belief that the Committee had 
Insufficient information on which to judge the proposal, and ques- 
:ioned the feasibility of converting an educational building into 
lousing. He added that the housing question at UM/Worcester should 
)e faced on a long-range basis. President Wood stated his sympathy 
>oth with the need for student housing and with the idea of flexible 
lse of the new building. He questioned, however, the advisability of 
ising the building for student housing, since the Legislature in 1971 
lad deleted housing from the appropriation, and the equity of the 
oresent proposal, in that students on all campuses of the University 
must have equal access to housing. 

President Wood said that he believes a permanent housing 
>olicy is necessary, and that he reluctantly asked Dean Soutter to 
suspend activities for immediate housing of the incoming class. He 
said that the issue was a matter of subsidies, which are the responsi- 
bility of the Trustees and not that of the Worcester campus. It 
was the consensus of the Committee that, instead of the present 
proposal, a long-range plan should be developed for student housing 
with a January 1974 deadline, including the possibility of a six-month 
extension in planning. 

At the Chairman's request, Dean Soutter next asked the 
Committee for its reaction to the proposed artist's design for the 
:orridors in the new building. He introduced Mark Mendell of the firrfi 
of Campbell, Aldrich & Nulty, who explained to the Committee what the 
architects were trying to achieve with the color design for the 
corridors. The design suggested would be on walls opposite the corri- 
dor windows and would be relatively inconspicuous during daylight 
lours, but would give life to the building at night when the building 
:Ls illuminated. Mr. Mendell 's comments were supplemented by those of 
Mr. Harold Roth, who said that he felt the treatment of color and 
ishading would be pleasing and would show the building off to advantage; 
Mr. Mendell said that the design would not add to the cost of the 
building.

Dean Soutter stated that he is opposed to the design, 
feeling that it may cause criticism that the Medical School is more 
interested in aesthetic appeal than in functional use. After dis- 
cussion, Chairman Knowles asked Dean Soutter if he would agree to the 
Committee's taking the responsibility for approval of the design, and 
he stated that this would be acceptable to him. 

Chairman Knowles then asked for the Progress Report on the 
UM/Boston Campus (Doc. T7 4-003), and Acting Chancellor Hamilton com- 
mented on the written report distributed at the meeting. Dr. Hamil- 
ton explained that the target dates in the report were obtained from 
the project manager and the contractors, and that University personnefL 
met frequently to reassess these dates. He said that service and 
administrative facilities were ready for immediate occupancy. Diffi- 
culties with the ventilation system, he indicated, have caused some 
delay in occupying the buildings. Delivery and installation of 
furniture and equipment for the library, the science building, and 
the two colleges are expected by October 1. 

President Wood commented that the latest expected date, 
except for Coast Guard approval of the reconstruction of the MDC 
culvert south of the UMass interchange, is December 1. He inquired 
which activities will be taking place on the campus during the fall 
semester and Dr. Hamilton replied that there would be approximately 
100 staff representing the registrar, library, personnel, purchasing 
and other business activities. He stated that as soon as the College 
and Science buildings are ready for use, classroom activities would 
be held there for the Upward Bound and the Action programs, including 
some two to three hundred students. He said that some faculty mem- 
bers have volunteered to hold periodic classes at Columbia Point, 
while still teaching at the Park Square location. 

Trustee Pumphret asked what security precautions would be 
taken once furniture and equipment were installed in the buildings 
and Acting Chancellor Hamilton replied that furniture and equipment 
would not be delivered until buildings were ready for occupancy, at 
which time the University security personnel would be supplemented 
by contract security services as necessary. 

Treasurer Johnson suggested that the Committee defer formal 
acceptance of any building until that building is in use, at which 
time it should be physically inspected by the Committee, probably in 
the presence of the architects, the contractors and other concerned 
parties.

Trustee Croce asked about the transportation situation. 
Acting Chancellor Hamilton said that resolution of this matter is 
behind schedule. President Wood stated that the capacity of the 
University to stagger classes in and out of the area will make the 
transportation problem less acute than otherwise. He suggested, 
however, that traffic flow might be endangered by slippage in the 
installation of the signaling devices at the access roads to the 
University.

Progress Report 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

President Wood informed the Committee that, through the 
efforts of the Acting Chancellor, the University had secured an 
interest subsidy grant from the Federal government in the amount of 
$68,000 for Building 030. 

Chairman Knowles read a letter from Mr. Willard Prince, 
recently resigned from the Planning Office of the Boston campus, 
^raising the Committee for its perception, judgment and devotion to 
iuty . 

Chairman Knowles then asked Dean Soutter to report on the 
progress being made at the Worcester campus. Dean Soutter replied 
that the power plant would be turned over to the University on 
August 1, that the campus will have partial occupancy of the main 
Duilding by that date, and that complete occupancy should be possible 
Dy December. He asked for the Committee's wishes with regard to 
icceptance efothe buildings, and it was the sense of the meeting that 
acceptance should be delayed until any problems with the buildings 
lave been resolved. 

Dean Soutter noted problems with regard to the architec- 
lral treatment of some of the rooms in the hospital. He would like 
:o see interior elevations of the lobby and certain other rooms, but 
las been unsuccessful in obtaining these from the architects. The 
bureau of Building Construction has been requested to obtain such 
elevations from the architects, and agrees to do so if the University 
will pay the cost. Mr. Roth stated that there should be no additional 
:harge for such elevations, and that the architects should provide 
:hem upon request. Dean Soutter asked for a vote from the Committee 
m this, and on motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED: That the architects be requested to prepare color 
renderings and elevations of the areas within the 
hospital about which Dean Soutter has expressed 
concern for presentation to the Committee on 
Buildings and Grounds at the earliest date convenient 
for the Committee, and that it be understood that 
there will be no extra charge for this work. 

Dean Soutter reported that the construction of the hospital 
s ahead of schedule, and that it is expected that one level will be 

completed in July of 1974, with a moving date by December of that 

year. He indicated his belief that, if progress continues at the 
^resent rate, the Medical School should be able to begin operation of 

the Gut-Patient Department by March of 1975. The In-Patient Depart- 

nent should open in July of that year. 

The Dean noted that funds for equipment have not yet been 
appropriated, but that because of low bids on the construction of the 
hospital, approximately $5 million could be available for equipment 
and furnishing if the Legislature agreed. He estimated it would take 
516 million to furnish the hospital, adding that it would take at

least a year and a half to get X-Ray equipment, which would have to 
be tested before it could be used. 

The Parking Garage, he commented, would be needed by 
March 1, 1975. President Wood asked Mr. Roth what provisions had 
been made for parking, and Mr. Roth replied that surface parking 
will be available in time for the opening of the new Medical School 
building, and that the opening of the garage has been planned to 
relate to the opening of the hospital. 

Dean Soutter informed the Committee that the Department of 
Public Health, City of Worcester, and the Regional Red Cross Blood 
Program both would like space in the Shaw Building and would both 
pay rent. He asked the Committee for permission to work with 
Treasurer Johnson in drawing up a contract for the use of this build- 
ing with the understanding that he would then present the proposed 
contract to the Committee for approval. The Committee agreed to this 
procedure. 

Chairman Knowles next called on Director of Planning 
Littlefield, UM/Amherst, to report on the Demonstration Grant from 
the Department of Transportation (Doc. T74-005) . Mr. Littlefield 
said that revenue from parking fees will provide funds to operate the 
transportation system at Amherst. He explained that buses in the 
system make a thirty-mile circuit which takes from 110-120 minutes. 
The buses pass each point along the route every ten minutes during 
rush hours; on campus during the same hours, the shuttle buses run 
every five minutes. The system includes 14 buses. Evening service 
;,is provided basically for the convenience of students and is funded 
by the Student Senate. 

In reply to a question from Trustee Pumphret, Mr. Little- 
field said that there is no charge for riding the buses, and that 
when an occasional nonstudent or nonemployee of the University rides, 
he also is not charged, but that this happens so infrequently as not 
to be a problem. Trustee Pumphret expressed his feeling that public 
use of the buses at no charge gives validity to the complaint that 
parking fees charged to owners of cars are subsidizing a general bus 
system. He said that he also feels it difficult to justify the 
frequency of service and the distance of outreach. President Wood 
and Trustee Pumphret stated that there should be some means of 
identifying bus riders; Trustee Croce suggested registration cards 
could be used for identification purposes. 

Trustee Pumphret asked if cost-per-passenger-per-mile could 
be determined, against the time when the demonstration grant expires. 
Mr. Littlefield stated he would develop cost and use data as the grant 
progresses. Following additional discussion on service, President 
Wood asked when the proposal would be fully implemented and Mr. 
Littlefield replied that this would be determined by Phase 4 of the 
Economic Stabilization Act.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Chairman Knowles next called upon Professor Donald Pro- 
^ulske, Head of Department of Forestry and Wildlife Management of the 
JM/Amherst College of Food and Natural Resources, to report on the 
3 roposed FAA Construction of a Microwave Repeater on Mt. Toby . 



I 



rofessor Progulske stated that in the process of updating their air 
control traffic center, the FAA has asked to construct a microwave 
repeater on Mt. Toby to relay signals from Cummington to Mt. Monadnock 
in New Hampshire. The FAA will maintain the road to the tower. 
Counsel Myers, UM/Amherst, and Treasurer Johnson said that they saw 
10 problem in the proposed arrangement with FAA. The contract would 
oe a license with an indefinite term. On motion made and seconded, 
it was 

VOTED: To recommend to the Board of Trustees that the 

administration of the University of Massachusetts 
at Amherst be authorized to enter a license agree- 
ment with the Federal Aviation Administration to 
enable the Federal Aviation Administration to 
install a microwave repeater on Mt. Toby, Sunder- 
land, Massachusetts, as part of a long-range radar 
facility which the FAA is establishing to provide 
additional radar coverage of aircraft movements in 
the New England region; further, to authorize the 
Treasurer of the University to execute all necessary 
documents in behalf of the University to implement 
the proposed license agreement. 

Chairman Knowles then called on Planning Director Little- 
field to give the Progress Report for the Amherst campus. He said 
that the campus is currently working with the town of Amherst on the 
sewage problem. The buildings concerned are the new library, the 
fine arts building, and the infirmary. Trustee Sullivan reported 
that the Town of Amherst is currently under a state sewer ban as a 
result of the Federal Environmental Pollution Act. The town has a 
primary sewage treatment plant, but all sewage does not go through it 
The new sewage treatment plant will be completed in the fall of 1976, 
and the town is asking that it not have to provide secondary treat- 
ment until that time. 

President Wood asked where the University stood on the Tobin 
Hall fire loss; Mr. Littlefield replied that the University received 
$77,000 from the Unforeseen Emergencies Fund, which will cover the 
cost of repairs to the building, but will not cover the cost of the 
equipment and supplies which were lost. This is being appealed. 

The Committee adjourned to Executive Session at 12:45 p.m.

Tenure Case of 



The Tenure Case of Professor A. Wayne Corcoran was pre-

ings of the hearing on the case conducted by the Committee on June 21* Prof. Corcoran 
1973, and a vote to recommend disposition to the Board of Trustees at 
the August meeting. 



At the request of Chairman Troy, Vice President Peter 
Edelman presented the Commonwealth Transfer Compact (Doc. T74-011) 
-an agreement, negotiated by the Transfer Review Council, whereby a 
two-year Associate degree from one of the public community colleges 
in the Commonwealth would be given full transfer credit at the public 
four-year institutions. Mr. Edelman stated that the agreement does 
not guarantee the admission of an Associate degree holder to a four- 
year institution, but only that, once admitted through the normal 
procedures, the student would be given credit for the full two years 
completed.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Upon inquiry from Trustee Shaler and Chairman Troy, the 
need for further review by appropriate campus governing bodies was 
noted, with the Chairman emphasizing the need for faculty endorsement 
in view of the implications for academic standards. Through discus- 
sion, there emerged the fact that an earlier UM/Amherst Faculty Senat^ 
endorsement of a transfer agreement covered the Associate in Arts 
degree only and not the Associate in Science. General agreement was 
expressed that there exists sufficient difference in course content 
between the two Associate programs to require the full review process 
Dy the Faculty Senate. 

At the request of President Wood, Dr. Ernest Beals, Director 
of the Office of Transfer Affairs, UM/Amherst, outlined the history 
and objectives of the Transfer Review Council. He identified as 
important goals: (1) equal treatment in the admissions process of 
students with equal academic preparation; (2) the delineation of 
credit transfer requirements; and (3) the attempt to co-ordinate the 
admissions and transfer policies of the three segments of public 
ligher education in the Commonwealth so that they may function more 
nearly as a system. The opportunity for co-operation between public 
and private institutions was also noted. 

Professor Seymour Shapiro, representative to the Board from 
the Faculty Senate, UM/Amherst, stated that he saw a need for more 
discussion of the issue on the campus, with particular regard to the 
tiistory of success and failure of such transfer students on the 
Amherst campus. 

Upon inquiry from President Wood, Chancellor Golino, UM/ 
Boston, stated that his faculty had not yet addressed the issue, but 
that he would bring it to them as a high priority matter. Speaking 
for himself, he strongly endorsed the concept of encouraging trans- 
fers from two-year institutions. President Wood stressed his belief 
in the value of such an agreement if properly implemented. 

At the request of Chairman Troy, further Committee action 
on the Compact was deferred until early fall, pending review by the 
faculties at Amherst and Boston. 

In presenting the Proposal for College IV (Doc. T74-002) to 
the Committee, Vice Chancellor Dorothy Marshall, UM/Boston, recounted 
the initial planning steps for the College, and stated that the need 
now was to begin the search for and engage a dean and planning staff. 
The orientation of this College towards professional studies was dis- 
cussed, as was its relation to the existing Colleges. 

Confirming remarks made by Vice Chancellor Marshall and 
Chancellor Golino, Chairman Troy emphasized that in approving the 
search for a dean, no commitment was being made to specific programs. 
Accordingly, it was moved, seconded and

VOTED: To recommend to the Board of Trustees that they 
authorize Chancellor Carlo L. Golino, UM/Boston, 
to undertake a search for a dean and an appro- 
priate planning staff for College IV. 

The Tenure Recommendations for Professors Blattner, 
Kaulenas and Seelig (Doc. T74-009, 008 and 006) were presented by 
Associate Provost Robert Hoopes, UM/ Amherst. After explanation and 
brief discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend to the Board that Dr. Robert J. 
Blattner be appointed Head of the Department 
of Mathematics and Statistics and Professor 
with tenure at UM/Amherst. 

It was then 

VOTED: To recommend to the Board that Dr. M. S. Kaulenas 
be appointed Associate Professor of Zoology with 
tenure at UM/Amherst. 

It was further 

VOTED: To recommend to the Board that Dr. Harry Seelig 
be appointed Assistant Professor of German with 
tenure at UM/Amherst. 

At the request of Chancellor Br ornery, UM/Amherst, the pro- 
posed Merger of School of Nursing and Department of Public Health 
into a School of Health Sciences (Doc. T74-012) was reviewed by 



4161 



Acting Provost David Bischoff, UM/Amherst, who traced the campus 
review of the proposed merger and the endorsements it received at 
various levels. Anticipated advantages noted were: (1) closer 
academic and administrative collaboration; (2) increased probability 
of accreditation for the public health component; (3) more nearly 
equal male and female enrollments; and (4) a nursing faculty 
strengthened through access to the graduate faculty of public health. 
No increased costs were anticipated as a result of the merger at this 
time. 

Trustee Shaler questioned the merger in view of a possible 
transfer of the School of Nursing to UM/Worcester, to which Dr. 
Bischoff responded that there were short-term benefits which could be 
realized without placing constraints on any long-range planning 
efforts. 

President Wood noted that reactions to the proposed merger 
had been requested from Boston and Worcester, and that these had been 
made available to Chancellor Bromery. He stated his view that the 
merger was essentially an internal campus reorganization, with no 
long-term implications for future pan-University policy, or the Univer 
sity's health education posture. It was, therefore, moved, seconded 
and

VOTED: To recommend to the Board the establishment of a 

School of Health Sciences at UM/Amherst, initially 
by merging the existing School of Nursing and 
Department of Public Health. 

Associate Provost Robert Woodbury outlined the rationale 
for the Lease of Apartment Facilities in Washington, D.C, for 
Student Interns (Doc. T74-007), citing both logistical and educationa 
benefits. To an inquiry regarding the relation of this undertaking 
o future possible internship activity at UM/Boston, Dr. Woodbury 
eplied that the Washington experience had been planned according to 
|the spirit and intent of the Saloma document on student internships, 
and thus would be complemented by any such efforts originating from 
the Boston campus. After further brief discussion, it was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend to the Board of Trustees that the 
Administration at Amherst be authorized to 
negotiate a lease of apartment facilities in 
Washington, D.C, said lease term to commence 
in the fall of 1973 and not to exceed August 31, 
1975, for the purposes of housing approximately 
forty interns per semester from the University 
who will be administrative interns in Congres- 
sional and Executive offices of the government. 
Further, that the Treasurer of the University be 
empowered and authorized to execute a lease 
agreement for and in behalf of the University in 
furtherance of said purpose upon successful 
completion of said negotiations. 

There being no further business, the meeting adjourned at

Healey. 



In response to the request of the Chairman, President Wood 
presented the University Operating Budget for Fiscal Year 1974 (Doc. 
T74-013) . The President commented that, for the first time in his 
administration, the operating budget was complete and in hand at the 
beginning of the fiscal year with which it dealt. He said that he 
regards the 1974 operating budget as basically good, providing a 
higher level of support than in any previous year. President Wood 
indicated that the budget leaves problems in certain areas such as 
financial aid and library support, but that in general it provides a 
satisfactory basis for operation. 

President Wood informed the Committee that guidelines for 
fiscal year 1975 budget-making have been distributed to appropriate 
officials within the University and that the budget-making process 
is underway. He said that the thrust of the process will be to hold 
the operating budget for fiscal year 1975 below $100 million. The 
President said that he does not expect the Board of Trustees to 
receive and act on the Operating Budget projected for fiscal year 
1975 until October; and indicated that the projected budget will be 
in the hands of Trustees in sufficient time for them to consider it 
carefully in advance of formal action. 

In discussion of the operating budget for fiscal year 1974, 
Trustee Troy asked whether the budget would be vulnerable to any 
criticism with regard to its increase over earlier years. President 
Wood replied that such criticisms might arise only if there is a lack 
of understanding about the fact of the University's growth and 
requirements. As an example of this growth, he mentioned that in the 
current year the University is occupying some 2.1 million square feet 
of newly constructed operating space.

Trustee Pumphret asked whether reserve funds will be dis- 
tributed through the process of transfer during the fiscal year, and 
the President indicated that this would be the case. Trustee Croce 
asked how income for services will be handled when the hospital at 
JM/Worcester comes into operation; President Wood indicated that this 
Ls viewed as a substantial problem, currently under study, and that 
le will comment on supposed approaches at a later date. Trustee 
umphret inquired whether the "utilities" item in the budget dealing 
tfith UM/Boston covers costs for the whole year, or only for the first 
six months; and Chancellor Golino indicated that the item does cover 
the whole year but is only an estimate. 

Trustee Knowles asked about budget coverage of transpor- 
tation at the Amherst campus at the completion of the Department of 
Transportation demonstration grant. Chancellor Bromery replied that 
the grant will cover expenses during the fall, that buses will be 
acquired by the University from the government, and that his under- 
standing is that the Federal government will be willing to receive 
requests for support beyond January 1974. He also said that it is 
lis expectation that transportation system costs will be offset by 
parking fees as the new fee system goes into effect this fall, but he 
added that he expects UM/Amherst will need to ask for some additional 
support for busing service. Trustee Apostola asked whether the Board 
could expect to receive further funds from the legislature for suppor 
Df bus operations, and President Wood commented that this could be 
contingent on the University's showing it has a responsible parking 
fee program related to the transportation system. 

It was then moved, seconded, and 

VOTED: That the Board of Trustees adopt the Operating 
Budget for Fiscal Year 1974 as detailed in 
Document T74-013, subject to revisions which 
reflect the modifications necessary to accom- 
modate the document to the appropriations enacted 
in Chapter 466 of the General Laws. 

Chairman Healey then indicated that, subsequent to the 
adoption of the new Bylaws, two new Trustee committees would be 
established - Budget and Long-Range Planning. He said that he would 
ask the Nominating Committee under Trustee Crowley to consider assign 
nents of Trustees to these committees, and other committee membership 
natters, and report its recommendations to the Board of Trustees at 
the September meeting. President Wood indicated his agreement with 
this procedure, commenting that Secretary Patterson at his request 
nad accomplished an analysis of Trustee Committee assignments, and 
that this analysis would be made available to Trustee Crowley. 

Chairman Healey then turned to the matter of the new state- 
ment of the Board of Trustee Bylaws (Doc. T73-031, Draft 5), and said 
that he proposed to place the new Bylaws before the Board of Trustees 
for action. It was agreed that this should be done. The Chairman

COMMITTEE 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

commented further that, in conformance with a suggestion earlier 
made by Trustee Rowland, it would be desirable to have in one note- 
book for Trustee use the new Bylaws, laws basic to the operation of 
the University, current governance documents, and fundamental policy 
statements of the Board. It was agreed that the Office of the Secre- 
tary would supply Trustees with such a notebook. 

At the Chairman's request, President Wood then discussed 
matters relative to senior executive compensation within the Univer- 
sity. President Wood said that there had been recognized a need to 
review where the University of Massachusetts stands in comparison to 
other institutions with regard to senior executive compensation. He 
said that he had asked Treasurer Johnson to assist him in this review 
and that, while the review is not yet entirely complete, he expects 
to be able to transmit observations and conclusions to the Trustees 
at an early date. The President observed that the present status of 
senior executive compensation is the result of ten years of effort to 
make the University of Massachusetts competitive with other first- 
line public institutions in the United States. In his judgment, the 
present status reflects differential campus development as well as 
general growth, containing certain imbalances and lack of clear lines 
which will be remedied. 

A general discussion followed the President's remarks, 
during which Chairman Healey commented that for some years the 
University had been "playing catch-up" on salaries, but that now it 
was necessary to look at the whole structure in terms of careful, 
rational planning. The Chairman spoke of his view that it is a 
responsibility of the Executive Committee to review the final report 
of findings concerning senior executive compensation prepared by the 
President and prepare guidelines on this subject for consideration by 
the Board of Trustees. 

At the Chairman's request, Chancellor Bromery presented his 
recommendation with regard to Classification of Position Titles 
(Doc. T74-015) dealing with the position of Senior Head of Residence. 
Chancellor Bromery indicated that, as residential patterns at the 
Amherst campus have changed, the position of Head of Residence has 
become more important, and submitted his view that this warranted 
improving the classification of the position and its compensation. 
Upon his recommendation and after discussion, it was then moved, 
seconded, and 

VOTED: To recommend to the Board that they approve the 
position title Senior Head of Residence, as 
detailed in Doc. T74-015. 

The meeting was adjourned at 12 noon.

President Wood introduced the Appointment with Tenure of 
Professor Robert S. Weiss, UM/Boston (Doc. T74-018) , noting that it 



had been reviewed by Father Walsh and Chancellor Golino, both of whom 
recommended that the appointment be made. 

Secretary Patterson inquired why this recommendation had 
come to the Board so late, and President Wood replied that in this 
case the recruitment of the individual had just recently been con- 
cluded, but that he, too, was anxious that in the future, tenure 
recommendations not be brought in one by one. 

Trustee Robertson inquired whether the Acting Chairman of 
the Department has been considered, and President Wood replied that 
he did not wish to be considered. 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To appoint Robert S. Weiss as Professor of 
Sociology with tenure, UM/Boston, and as 
Chairman of the Department of Sociology, 
College II, UM/Boston, effective September 1,

The floor then being opened to general discussion, Trustee 
Robertson noted the need for a more comprehensive orientation progra^n 
for new Trustees. There was agreement that there is a need for this, 
and Secretary Patterson was charged with developing a program.

The meeting was called to order at 4:13 p.m. by Chairman 
Cnowles, who informed the Committee that the first item on the agenda 
was a report on the status of the construction of the teaching 
lospital. 

Chairman Knowles asked President Wood to comment, who said 
:hat he thought it was time to have a general review of the status of 
:he development of the Worcester campus. President Wood informed the 
Committee that he and Dean Soutter had met that morning with Lt. 
Governor Dwight regarding the parking garage, and that earlier Dean 

outter had met with Speaker Bartley. He then asked Dean Soutter to 

eport . 

Dean Soutter called the attention of the Committee to the 
■irchitects' design for a meditation room in the hospital, which he 

felt was not attractive. He explained that the intent had been for a 
isimple room with chairs where visitors could come and sit. He said 

:hat the architects see no problem in changing the design of this 
::oom. 

Dean Soutter then reported on the treatment of the court- 
yards. He said that originally the courtyards had been planned with 
grass and trees, but that in March of 1970 the architects presented 
:o the Committee a change in the plans for the courtyards which 
included plantings and benches. Dean Soutter stated that he does not 
believe the change presented in March, 1970, and the current plans 
are the same. However, three of the courtyards have been completed. 
His concern is whether the fourth courtyard should be built as

currently designed, or changed to a more simple design. He has been 
informed that the design can be changed, but that if the granite for 
the courtyard has already been cut, it might be more expensive to 
draw plans for a simpler design than to continue with the courtyard 
as presently planned. 

Trustee Pumphret asked if the architects were not required 
to submit all plans to the Committee for approval, to which Trustee 
Haigis replied that they were, but that approval was not necessarily 
required for all details of the plans. 

Chairman Knowles next called upon Mr. Rothj architectural Site Development 

consultant to the Worcester campus, to explain the various phases of Drawings 

construction with regard to the proposed parking garage, as shown in (Doc. T74-019) 
the Site Development Drawings (Doc. T74-019). 

Mr. Roth explained that plans are being made so that park- 
ing facilities will be provided to correspond to the demand as the 
various buildings are completed and put into use. 

Phase 1 of the parking plan will become effective in the 
very near future. While the teaching hospital is under construction, 
only the upper part of the site can be used. Provision is being made 
for 213 cars in the graveled lots and for 50 cars around the perimeter 
of the service drive; 30 cars are now provided for at the power plant 
and 50 at the service entrance. Phase 1 also provides for a small 
amount of landscaping and for site lighting. 

Phase 2 will accommodate an additional 300 cars, bringing 
the capacity for parking to approximately 648 cars without inter- 
fering with hospital construction. 

Phase 3 will be put into effect when the teaching hospital 
is completed and in 24-hour operation. There will be a small area 
for surface parking near the front for out-patient use. Phase 3 
calls for structured parking to accommodate 1050 cars. The garage 
has not been designed, but in order to develop the site plans, certain 
assumptions were made. Access to the contemplated garage will be 
worked out to enable optimum use of the garage. It is proposed that 
the garage empty out in three different areas. Phase 3 plans for 
structured parking show tiers going up the hillside in order to 
minimize the bulk of the garage and to make it fit into the overall 
design of the landscape. The question was raised as to whether the 
proposed garage could be expanded if more capacity were needed, and 
Mr. Roth replied that there was room for expansion on the end of the 
garage or by adding levels, but that it would be too expensive to go 
below ground level. 

Phase 3-A plans show the first level of the parking garage 
housing shops and other commercial activities; Dean Soutter stated 
that thought was being given to the possibility of using this level 
as a motel for the use of visitors to the hospital. If this scheme

roved successful, then provisions might later be made for a hotel to 
>e built either by the University or by private enterprise. 

Trustee Croce asked about a proposed helicopter pad in the 
:omplex, and Mr. Roth stated that the plans show such a pad near the 
Emergency ward. 

In reply to a question from Trustee Boyden with regard to 
Dossibilities for expansion of the campus, Dean Soutter remarked that 
the University currently owns over 128 acres of land and that there is; 
;nore land adjacent to the University property which can be obtained if 
required or desired. The building complex has been designed so that 
there is room to expand both upward and outward. 

Phase 4 of the proposed parking garage would bring the total 
marking capacity of the garage to 2000 spaces. The garage is being 
planned so that when it is built it will not be necessary to destroy 
the present surface parking. The garage will be built over the park- 
ing area. 

The contract for the design of Phase 1 has been let. The 
architects were instructed by the Bureau of Building Construction to 
lay out the entire site. Money for facilities for a total of 345 
cars is budgeted in the contract for the medical science building. 
Ihe money for Phase 2 will come out of the reserve fund for the 
lospital. 

Mr. Roth stated that the power plant is completed and 
operating, but Dean Soutter said the amount of vibration is still too 
^reat to be acceptable and that work is being done on the boilers to 
reduce the noise. Dean Soutter added that the University has begun 
to move into the medical science building. The teaching hospital is 
scheduled to open in March, 1975. 

Chairman Knowles stated that the Building and Grounds Com- 
mittee had already approved the conceptual design of the Medical 
School site which was presented by representatives of Campbell, AldriCh 
and Nulty in March, 1970. The new drawings are a more detailed 
version of this design, taking account of the need for phased developT- 
ment of surface parking and establishing the location and general 
dimension of a future parking garage. She said that if there was no 
objection, the new drawings would be considered approved by the 
Committee. 

The meeting adjourned at 5 p.m.

The meeting was called to order at 9:30 a.m. by President 
Wood as Acting Chairman. 

President Wood reviewed the current status of the Univer- 
sity, calling attention to a number of points. He observed that the 
center of much attention during the fall term will be the opening of 
the Columbia Point campus, but that attention will also be attracted 
by the opening of the major new facility at the University Medical 
School in Worcester. 

As other matters that are of interest to the Board of 
Trustees in the current situation of the University, President Wood 
discussed the following. He commented that the reorganization dis- 
cussion now appears largely concluded, and that the University's 
position in the structure of higher education in Massachusetts is 
unimpaired. He said that in the legislative hearings no substantial 
support for the reorganization plan had been manifested except that 
advanced by Secretary Cronin. President Wood thanked especially 
Chairman Healey, Chancellor Bromery, and Chancellor Golino for their 
participation in testimony during the hearings. He said that he had 
informed the Governor that the University stands ready to cooperate 
in consideration of other ways in which it may be possible to 
strengthen higher education in the Commonwealth. 

Speaking of budgetary matters, President Wood reminded the 
Committee that the Operating Budget for Fiscal 1974 had been enacted 
and is now in effect, and that positions made possible under it have 
been established by the Legislature. He said that an Emergency 
Capital Outlay Budget had come from the Governor with adjustments

:hat affect Boston and Worcester campus developments, and that the 
regular Capital Outlay Budget will require more time for its prepa- 
ration. 

President Wood reported that necessary steps are being taker 
:o implement the requirements of the Governance Statement adopted by 
:he Board of Trustees in the spring of 1973. He said that this is a 
tiiajor task for the current academic year, that every effort is being 
made to make the operation of the governance policies conform to the 
:ime requirement in the basic document, and that implementation will 
seek to minimize red tape. 

President Wood commented that a review of graduate educatior. 
orograms, while long overdue, should be completed in the near future, 
and that it is his hope the review will lead to reducing the number 
of Ph.D. programs and in other ways strengthening the quality and 
;ontrolling costs of graduate education. 



With regard to the University of Massachusetts Medical 
School at Worcester, President Wood spoke of several issues. He said 
that the 1975 Operating Budget currently being proposed by the Medical 
School contemplates a 153% increase largely as a function of the 
opening of the teaching hospital and the addition of staff. He said 
that the Trustees will need to give policy consideration to the 
proper handling of the teaching hospital budget itself, as distinct 
from that of the Medical School, and to the question of proper com- 
jensation of Medical School faculty as patient fee payments begin to 
become a factor of income. He said it is inescapable that costs at 
Worcester for some time will go up faster than will the production of 
graduates with the M.D. degree. President Wood forecast that there 
tfill be continuing emphasis by the State, HEW, and other units on 
equality of opportunity for women and minority group members in the 
Drogram of the Medical School. President Wood commented that current-- 
Ly the University is vulnerable on these counts at the Medical School,, 
and that more discussion of these matters is to be expected. Presi- 
dent Wood also observed that Trustees should expect continuing 
pressures to exist for land utilization around the Medical School 
campus by private developers, by highway planners, etc., and said 
that attention must be given to consideration of the University's own 
aeeds with regard to these contiguous areas. 

President Wood concluded his remarks by saying that a 
principal concern under his leadership will be faculty development on 
a five-year basis on all campuses; he reported that he expects in 
the next six weeks in this connection to move toward the appointment 
of an Academic Vice President of the University. 

President Wood then invited Chancellor Golino to report to 
the Executive Committee with regard to the Boston campus. Chancellor 
Golino said that he had been actively seeking in recent weeks to com- 
plete his understanding of UM/Boston organization. He commented that 
progress is being made toward the appointment of a Vice Chancellor

for Student Affairs, that the search committee in this regard has 
identified approximately 20 possibilities, that it is scheduled to 

jive him the names of five top candidates by the end of the third 
week of September, and that he hopes to come to the appointment stage 
by October. Chancellor Golino reported that a search committee for 
candidates for the position of Dean of College IV has been agreed 
upon, will meet soon, and that its work should be completed by 
January 1, 1974. He said that he hopes to have a Dean and planning 
staff appointed by July 1974, in order to allow such a group to have 

:he next year for adequate planning of the new College. 

Chancellor Golino reported that enrollment at UM/Boston for 
:he fall term includes 2,100 new students, of whom 1,450 are freshmen 
and 650 are transfers. These, added to 4,000 returning students, 
nake the present enrollment of the campus approximately 6,100. He 
observed that 300 of the enrollment are students in College III. 
Chancellor Golino said that he has been especially pleased by the 
effectiveness of the orientation period for students new to all three 
of the Colleges. 

Chancellor Golino reported to the Committee that he has been 
especially active in community relations in recent weeks, that he has 
been to local homes for dinners, has attended meetings, has appeared 
on a television program, has visited with personnel of Boston College 
High School, and has called upon the Archbishop. Chancellor Golino 
observed that the surrounding community has concerns about the Univer 
sity, particularly with regard to housing, but that he senses a 
fundamental reservoir of basic good will toward the University. 

In response to a question by Trustee Knowles with regard to 
relations to Mayor White, Chancellor Golino commented that he had 
visited the Mayor, and that the President is carrying principal 
responsibility for working with city government in behalf of the 
University. Trustee Pumphret observed that the Dorchester Argus pro- 
vides abundant evidence of the community activities of Chancellor 
Golino. Trustee Crowley asked whether incoming transfer students 
were largely from community colleges, and Chancellor Golino answered 
that he did not possess this information at present. On the matter 
of transportation, Chancellor Golino said that the University is 
awaiting MBTA word on costs of a shuttle bus which might be available 
in January, and that he is meeting with three private carriers to 
secure estimates as a full-back position in case the MBTA proposition 
does not appear feasible or desirable. Trustee Pumphret questioned 
whether it is wise to negotiate with private carriers, feeling that 
;|the MBTA should be responsible for this aspect of public transporta- 
tion. Chancellor Golino replied that he considered it productive to 
secure outside estimates. He reported that roadwork and signal con- 
tracts had been sent to the low bidder and that work needed should 
begin in approximately two weeks. 

In connection with employment at Columbia Point, Chancellor 
Golino said that 218 applications had been made for jobs, that 154 
of these applications were from the local impact area, and that 50 of

these were from minority group members. Of 48 positions available, 
Chancellor Golino said that 29 had been filled, 18 by personnel from 
the local area and six from minority groups. 

Chancellor Golino said that he feels the most difficult 
problem for a while at the new campus at Columbia Point will continue 
to be the question of housing. He said that the campus housing 
office will make an especial point of instructing students in options 
available to them and in facts about the impact of their locating in 
the area. 

Chancellor Golino reported his expectation of early action 
with regard to the appointment of an Affirmative Action Officer, say- 
ing that the only present difficulty in this regard is that the 
salary proposed by some may be too high. Trustee Robertson observed 
that it is important for an Affirmative Action Officer to have high 
status if he or she is to be effective; Chancellor Golino agreed, 
saying that the Affirmative Action Officer will report directly to 
him. 

With regard to building completion, Chancellor Golino 
reported his expectation that present schedules will be met, even 
though a temporary jurisdictional strike involving two unions has 
slowed progress in the immediate present. Trustee Pumphret asked 
whether the Chancellor was serious about a "people mover" as a 
transportation device; Chancellor Golino said that he is not losing 
sleep thinking about this possibility. 

President Wood emphasized with regard to the Columbia Point 
campus that it is now open, with the Chancellor present and in charge 
and with use developing to full scale as rapidly as conditions permit 

President Wood then asked Provost Gluckstern to report for 
the UM/Amherst campus in the absence of Chancellor Bromery. Provost 
Gluckstern observed that Chancellor Bromery was in Cairo arranging 
for the final transfer of the W.E.B. DuBois papers, and said that it 
becomes increasingly clear that the DuBois papers constitute a dis- 
tinguished acquisition by the University. 

Provost Gluckstern said that the Graduate Program Review, 
mentioned earlier by President Wood, should be viewed as a "draft". 
He said that there would be much more discussion on campus with regard 
to the graduate program before formal final presentation of the 
report to the President. Provost Gluckstern spoke of his expectation 
that the Review will lead to some reductions, consolidations, termi- 
nations, and other actions with regard to specific graduate programs. 
He felt also that the Review would lead to the identification of 
needs for strengthening existing programs. In response to a question 
by Trustee Apostola, Provost Gluckstern said that he regarded the 
Graduate Program Review as not unrelated to undergraduate offerings, 
and that he feels the Graduate Program Review will have an effect on 
programs at that level.

Provost 's 
Comments 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Provost Gluckstern reported in terms of faculty recruiting 
that 128 new faculty members have come to the Amherst campus at the 
beginning of this academic year, that 51 of them are women, 26 are 
from minority group backgrounds, and four are both women and of 
minority groups. He said that women and minority group members 
accounted for 57% of the hiring of new academic personnel for the 
current year. President Wood commented that a big surprise for many 
academics results from such recruitment, which establishes the fact 
that faculty of excellent quality do not necessarily have to be white 
males. Trustee Cagle asked how many of the 128 faculty appointments 
were full-time; Provost Gluckstern replied that all of these were in 
that category. He said that, separately, 42% of new part-time 
appointments are female and from minority groups. 

Provost Gluckstern further reported that four major appoint 
ments as department heads had been made from off campus, and that 
several new department heads had been appointed from the existing 
faculty. He said that meetings with union representatives had led to 
agreement for a collective bargaining election on November 15-16 on 
campus under agreed upon guidelines. Trustee Robertson asked about 
issues that might be addressed under collective bargaining; Provost 
Gluckstern replied that this is hard to foretell, but that issues 
might include parking, tenure, and administrative control over 
appointments. 

Provost Gluckstern reported that registration had gone well 
on campus on September 4, and that on-campus residence was turning 
out to be greater than anticipated. 

President Wood then asked Dean Soutter if he had additional' 
matters to report with regard to the University Medical School; the 
Dean said that he had nothing to add. Trustee Knowles commented that 
combined management of a teaching hospital and a Medical School pro- 
gram involves major new considerations of operation for the Univer- 
sity, and that it would be desirable to secure evidence from other 
institutions as to their experience in this regard. President Wood 
indicated that the University is presently securing such evidence for 
guidance in future operations . 

Trustee Gordon reported briefly on activities of the Board Report of 
of Higher Education, indicating issues in the future role of that Delegate to 
agency. He also reported that a private junior college had approached Board of Higher 



UM/Worcester — 
Dean's Comments 



UM/Boston to seek names of student applicants who had not been 
accepted at that campus. Chancellor Golino commented and Trustee 
Gordon concurred that the University has no freedom to release such 
names, and Trustee Gordon indicated his belief that it would be 
appropriate to refer all such requests in the future to the Board of 
Higher Education for disposition. 

President Wood then asked Vice Chancellor Campion tc .pre- 
sent Document T74-017, a proposal for the establishment of a rental 
rate for the Lashway House apartment in South Deerfield. Vice Chan-

cellor Campion said that the proposal provides for establishing the 
rental rate for a three-room apartment in the Lashway House located 
on the University farm property in South Deerfield, to be occupied by 
a farm hand who will also be responsible for serving as night watch- 
man and will provide weekend security for the property. He said that 
the proposal had been reviewed by Dean Spielman and had his support. 
Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED ; To recommend to the Board of Trustees that 
effective September 1, 1973, the monthly 
rental charge for the three-room apartment 
located in the Lashway House, South Deerfield, 
will be $35, including utilities. 

Trustee Boyden was recognized and commented to the Committed 
that he had been present on the UM/Amherst campus five times in the 
preceding three weeks and had been very well impressed by the tone of 
the campus, by its evident orderliness and efficiency, and by the 
hospitality extended to him during his visits. 

President Wood then asked Secretary Patterson to report on 
the present status of nominations for the University Medal for Out- 
standing Service. Secretary Patterson reviewed with the Executive 
Committee Document T74-020, which puts forward five candidates for 
the Medal, and indicated to the Committee that two questions need to 
be resolved: the number of awards in a given year, and the naming of 
a person(s) to receive the Medal. In brief discussion, the Committee 
expressed a sense that only one Medal should be given, and that its 
award should be seen as a very high honor. After further comments 
by Trustees Troy, Knowles, and Rowland, the Committee agreed with 
Trustee Pumphret that the importance of the award requires further 
study by the Executive Committee, and that action should be deferred 
until October. 

The meeting was adjourned at 10:45 a.m.

The meeting was called to order at 12:45 p.m. by Chairman 



Rowland . 



The Chairman stated her expectation that the Committee, in 
order to properly address itself to its charge, would meet monthly as 
scheduled, and that Committee members should plan to set aside the 
greater part of the meeting afternoon for Committee business. At the 
request of Trustee Carlson, future meetings will begin at 1:00 p.m., 
with luncheon at 12:30 p.m. 

In view of the nature and length of the Committee's agenda, 
it was agreed that attendance at the Committee meetings, except for 
Trustees, would be by invitation only and related to the particular 
topic under discussion. 

At the Chairman's invitation, President Wood discussed the 
role of the Long-Range Planning Committee and its relationship to the 
multicampus planning committee mandated by the Statement on University 
Governance, adopted by the Board of Trustees on April 4, 1973. The 
President noted that the two new Trustee Committees - Long-Range 
Planning and Budget - will operate in a more future-oriented context 
than the Board committees that have been established by functional 
areas. He remarked on the representative and consultative character 
of the multicampus committees, noting that through them the campus 
governing bodies and constituencies will have a means to advise the 
President with regard to planning and budget concerns.

President Wood further stated that he sees the success of 
the multicampus committees being dependent on how well the campuses 
keep each other informed. The recommendations of these committees, 
he stated, would come to him, to be taken into account as the Board 
and its Committees undertake their work. 

The Trustee Committee on Long-Range Planning will be con- 
cerned with developing the framework in which educational and facil- 
ities planning will take place, rather than making short-run deci* 
sions. 

Vice President Robinson presented each of the Trustees with 
a package of documents and materials informing them of previous and 
on-going planning efforts at the University. 

Chairman Rowland asked for identification of broadscale 
issues which would require major Board direction during the year. 
President Wood presented these as enrollment, contiguous land-use, 
future campus development, and inter-campus and public-private 
collaboration. 

At the request of Chairman Rowland, Committee members and 
the Chancellors reacted to the remarks of the President and others. 
There was general agreement expressed that the kinds of priorities 
outlined represented proper concerns of the Committee and that these 
could be refined and explored, and recommendations made, in a long- 
range, broad-scale context that would supplement usefully the efforts 
of the Trustee Committees and the campus planning and governing 
groups. 

It was suggested that an early consideration of the Commit- 
tee might be the relation of the development of UM/Boston to the two 
new community colleges, the State College and the private institution^ 
of higher education in the Boston area. 

The meeting adjourned at 2:10 p.m.

The meeting was called to order at 11:00 a.m. by President 
Wood acting for Chairman Healey, who arrived and assumed the chair 
shortly thereafter. 

President Wood called the attention of the Committee to 
Alcoholic Beverages: Proposed Trustee Policy Statement (Doc. T74- 
021), which had come forward from the Amherst campus. He reviewed 
the earlier policy statement of the Trustees on this matter voted on 
November 14, 1969, and said that changes since that date, particularly 
including legislation which has reduced the legal age for consumption 
of alcoholic beverages from 21 to 18, make it necessary for Univer- 
sity policy to be revised. President Wood, in commenting on the 
presently proposed policy document from the Amherst campus, recom- 
mended that the Committee take favorable action to allow the pro- 
posal to be established as provisional policy while revised regula- 
tions that can be assured of University-wide application are preparec 
and undergo legal and staff review.

There followed extensive discussion, participated in by all 
members of the Committee, concerning the statements and regulations 
proposed in Doc. T74-021. Trustee Pumphret began the discussion by 
expressing his concern that the present proposal would leave the 
University and the Board of Trustees in a very vulnerable position 
with regard to liability. Trustee Rowland and others spoke of 
similar concern, and Vice Chancellor Gage was questioned in detail 
about the proposal. Trustee Pumphret urged more careful study of 
proposed regulations by Counsel before the Committee and the Board 
were called upon to vote a formal policy on alcoholic beverages.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



President Wood called attention to two draft votes prepared by 
Assistant Counsel 0' Leary to substitute for the votes proposed in 
Doc. T74-021. He explained that the revised votes drafted by Mr. 
0' Leary were intended to provide for the kind of additional study 
called for by Trustee Pumphret, while at the same time providing the 
JAmherst campus with needed tentative guidelines pending the prepara- 
tion and approval of new regulations . Chairman Healey commented that 
the Committee at present have two choices in this matter: to leave 
the 1969 policy standing unchanged, or to take favorable action on 
the votes as drafted by Assistant Counsel 0' Leary, in order to pro- 
vide the Amherst campus with provisional guidelines pending adoption 
of a more carefully examined policy revision. 

After further discussion it was moved, seconded, and 

VOTED : UTo recommend to the Board of Trustees that the 
Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs at the 
Amherst campus be authorized to prepare for sub- 
mission to this Committee regulations relative 
to the possession, consumption, and sale of 
alcoholic beverages. Such regulations shall be 
consistent with all applicable laws of the 
Commonwealth and any applicable regulations of 
the Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission, and 
shall designate those geographic locations 
where the possession, consumption, or sale of 
alcoholic beverages is prohibited. 

2. The proposed regulations, dated August 15, 1973, 
(Doc. T74-021) are to serve as provisional 
policy while new regulations are being prepared, 
and the Vice Chancellor is authorized and directed 
to consult and confer with appropriate student 
government bodies and other organizations in the 
formulation of regulations relative to the 
possession, consumption, and sale of alcoholic 
beverages at the Amherst campus. 

Subsequent to the vote, Chairman Healey commented that the 
present issue brought back the whole question of liability and 
indemnification that is constantly faced by unpaid trustees. Chair- 
man Healey urged that the Board of Trustees should now press, in 
cooperation with other groups of unpaid trustees, for a General Court 
statute providing for indemnification, and said that he hopes such a 
statute might be adopted in the next session of the Legislature. 
Without vote in this regard, the sense of the meeting was in agree- 
ment with Chairman Healey' s view. Trustee Gordon commented further 
that he expects there will be indemnification insurance proposals for 
the Board of Trustees to consider in the coming months. 

By consent of its members, the Committee then went into 
executive session to discuss nominations for the University Medal for

COMMITTEE 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Outstanding Service and for honorary degrees. 

Decision on a single recipient for the University Medal 
was arrived at after substantial discussion, for recommendation to 
the full Board of Trustees at its meeting on October 3, 1973. At 
the instance of Trustee Rowland, President Wood was directed to pre- 
pare a suitable occasion for the award of the University Medal this 
fall; at the urging of fellow Trustees, Trustee Rowland agreed to 
assist in planning such an occasion. 

With Chancellor Bromery present, but continuing in execu- 
tive session, the Committee reviewed in detail the report trans- 
mitted to it from the Advisory Committee on Honorary Degrees, UM/ 
Amherst. The names of thirty persons nominated for honorary degrees 
to be awarded at the 1974 Commencement, UM/Amherst, emerged from 
this review. For the Committee, Chairman Healey asked Chancellor 
Bromery to consult on these names with the Advisory Committee, and 
to return to the Executive Committee at its meeting on October 15, 
or prior to that time in the event of a special meeting, with the 
Advisory Committee's reactions and suggestions. 

There being no further discussion to come before the Com- 
mittee, the meeting adjourned at 1:00 p.m.

The meeting was called to order at 2:40 p.m. by Chairman 
Pumphret, who reviewed the charge of the Committee on the Budget as 
set forth in Article III, Section 11, of the revised Bylaws of the 
Board of Trustees, and suggested that ground rules be established 
for the work of the Committee. It was the sense of the meeting that 
there would be issues, such as capital outlay, where it would be 
necessary for the Budget Committee to interrelate to other Trustee 
committees. 

Chairman Pumphret then called on President Wood to outline 
the role of the Committee as he sees it. President Wood stated 
that the creation of the Committee on the Budget was a result of the 
revised Bylaws of the Board of Trustees occasioned by the adoption 
of the new University governance structure last spring. He pointed 
out that the Statement on Governance provides for participation of 
the various campus governing bodies in the University decision- 
making process, and noted that the Statement called for the estab- 
lishment of a Multi-Campus Budget Committee, distinct from the 
Trustee Committee on the Budget, and advisory to the President. In 
this regard, the President requested the Chancellor to submit nomi- 
nations from these governing bodies for representatives to the 
Multi-Campus Budget Committee at the earliest possible date. 

President Wood informed the Committee that the budget as 
requested is stable, and that it represents a combined effort of the 
campuses and the administration to keep costs down. He stated that 
budget procedures had been refined and that this is the most 
detailed, justified budget that the University has to date been 
able to produce.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

President Wood then asked Dr. Gartenberg, Director of the 
Office of the Budget, to explain the budget structure and procedures. 

Dr. Gartenberg explained that the structure of the budget 
is determined by (1) the requirements set by the Commonwealth and 
(2) the needs of the University. He briefly described the budget 
cycle from the preparation of the budget request, through approval 
by the Governor, enactment by the Legislature, and implementation by 
the Board of Trustees. 

The Commonwealth requires the budget to be divided into 
sixteen subsidiary accounts. There are three personnel and service- 
related accounts and thirteen non-service-related accounts. This 
division serves as a control device, but it does not tell what an 
institution is really doing. Therefore, in order to better relate 
funding to campus activities, each campus submits a request broken 
down into five program areas. 

Once the budget request is approved by the Board of 
Trustees, it is submitted to the Executive Branch of the Commonwealth 
and to the Board of Higher Education. The Board of Higher Education 
reviews it and makes a recommendation to the Governor. This process 
must be completed by November 1. The Executive Office of Educational 
Affairs reviews the request, as does the Executive Office of Admin- 
istration and Finance. This is the first document brought before 
each session of the Legislature. Final appropriation is made in May 
or June. The University during this time is developing its operating 
budget. The operating budget is provided to the Budget Committee in 
July and to the Board of Trustees in August. During the course of 
the year, it may be necessary to transfer subsidiary funds from one 
account to another. If additional funds are required, there are two 
possibilities of obtaining money: (1) a supplemental budget can be 
requested and (2) a deficiency budget can be filed. 

At the request of the Chairman, the Chancellors and their 
budget officers explained campus procedures in the preparation of 
the budget, covering such items as student-faculty ratio, support 
services, physical plant, programs and enrollment. 

Chancellor Bromery asked Dr. Gulko to explain the budget 
procedures used on the Amherst campus; the latter stated that this 
year's budget is incremental and that he worked with the chief 
administrative officers to set targets for the increases in the 
various departments and with Provost Gluckstern, who set the targets 
for the various academic units. He said that the departments asked 
for an indication of the amount of money they could expect to 
receive and* using the figure, developed the budgets for their 
particular areas. These budget requests were reviewed using guide- 
lines emanating from the President's Office. 

Chancellor Golino said that two problems faced by the 
campus are (1) determining the number of faculty required for each

department and (2) determining the number of support staff necessary 
to support each department. He believes that input into the budget 
on such items must start with the department chairmen and stated 
that the deans are very much involved in the budget process. 

Chairman Pumphret then requested Treasurer Johnson to 
explain the merit increment policy of the University and Treasurer 
Johnson informed the Committee that since the University had received 
fiscal autonomy, the professional staff no longer receive annual step 
increases. The nonprofessional classified personnel are still on the 
step increase plan and they must start at the bottom of the grade. 
They receive annual step increases to the top of the grade, which 
takes seven years. 

Since there is no provision for automatic increases for the 
professional staff, the University has developed a merit increase 
policy. A dollar amount is included in the budget to cover merit 
increases. This figure originally represented 6 per cent of the 
total salaries, but since the Commonwealth has been providing auto- 
matic cost-of-living increases, the amount currently included repre- 
sents 4 per cent of the total salaries. 

The University's policy toward merit increases has been 
refined over the last several years. Most recently the campuses have 
submitted proposals for a revised merit increment plan. The Presiden 
las drafted a new merit policy for consideration by the Budget Com- 
mittee at its meeting on October 1, which incorporates many of the 
suggestions of the campuses and defines a three— level allocation 
process. Further, the policy would provide certain limitations as to 
who would be eligible to receive merit awards. 

Further discussion was deferred until the next meeting of 
the Committee and the meeting adjourned at 4:20 p.m.

The meeting was called to order at 2:40 p.m. by Chairman 
Pumphret, who introduced the subject of the Fiscal Year 1975 Mainte- 
nance Budget Request (Doc. T74-022) and noted that this budget 
request reflects the minimum amount on which the University can 
operate without a reduction in the quality and number of its programs 
He expressed his concern that the branches of the Commonwealth which 
deal with the appropriation of monies for the University be apprised 
of this fact. President Wood and Mr. Cass assured Chairman Pumphret 
that this was being done. 



It was agreed that the budget request gave evidence to the 
fact that much work had been done to ensure that costs were kept to 
a minimum and was an excellent presentation. Upon motion made and 
seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board of Trustees approve 
the Maintenance Budget Request for Fiscal Year

VOTED ; To recommend to the Board of Trustees that 
the allocation of State Funds by subsidiary 
account for Fiscal Year 1974 be revised as 
presented in Doc. T74-013 to accommodate 
anticipated expenditures. Should other 
adjustments to State expenditures occur, 
the President may approve further overall 
revisions in the expenditure plans of the 
campuses provided that these adjustments 
shall be reported to the Trustee Budget 
Committee. 

Chairman Pumphret asked Dr. Gartenberg to speak to the sub- 
ject of capital outlay and Dr. Gartenberg informed the Committee that 
there was an emergency capital outlay bill, presented by the Governor 
which is basically designed to accomplish two things: (1) a wording 
change for the Medical School, allowing it to purchase equipment 
from its existing appropriations and (2) a wording change for Build- 
ing 0802 at the Boston campus. 

Chairman Pumphret next called on Treasurer Johnson to 
explain the proposed guidelines for the Fiscal Year 1974 Merit Incre- 
ment Policy (Doc. T74-023). Treasurer Johnson informed the Committee 



that the guidelines were basically those he had outlined at the 
September 26 meeting. Chancellor Bromery stated that the Faculty 
Senate had voted to request that professional improvement awards be 
provided on the basis of an amount equal to two percent of average 
faculty salaries of all eligible employees. This would give a 
greater percentage of increase to the junior faculty than to the 
senior faculty. Dean Soutter and Chancellor Golino both indicated 
that they would like to bring this option to their faculties for 
reaction. Dr. Wood stated that the detailed guidelines developed by 
the campuses should reflect these proposals and that they should be 
submitted to him. 

After further brief discussion, Chairman Pumphret stated 
that acceptance of the proposed guidelines would not dictate what 
plans the campuses should develop, but would merely supply the frame- 
work within which the proposals should be presented, and on motion 
made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that in 

view of the need to serve the many purposes for 
which the University's Merit Increase appropriation 
was intended, the President be authorized to imple- 
ment a Merit Increment Pay Plan for professional 
employees up to a maximum State-funded expenditure 
of $792,115.00 and is authorized to implement merit 
increases for professional employees paid from non- 
State funds at a comparable rate.

The meeting was called to order by Chairman Gordon at 
9:30 a.m. 

Chairman Gordon said that the single purpose of the Commit- 
tee for the day was to prevent an emergency by having an emergency 
meeting. He said that a need exists to assure an adequate trans- 
portation link between the MBTA and the Columbia Point campus in time 
for utilization at the beginning of full-scale campus operation in 
January. Chairman Gordon said that Chancellor Golino was prepared to 
make proposals for Committee consideration in this regard. 

Chancellor Chancellor Golino commented that the need for a transporta- 

Golino on Campus tion link requires immediate attention. He reported the desire of

the campus to have a solution which would encourage students and 
staff to use public transportation. To accomplish this, Chancellor 
Golino said that the campus intended to utilize fees for parking in 
its 1700 spaces to support the operation of shuttle buses moving 
between Columbia Station and the Columbia Point campus. Chancellor 
Golino said that he had requested the Massachusetts Bay Transporta- 
tion Authority on July 17 to prepare estimates of the cost of pro- 
viding such shuttle service. He reported that the MBTA had not 
replied to his request until late September, that it became apparent 
the MBTA estimate would be high, and that he had in consequence made 
inquiry about the capabilities and costs of private carriers for 
handling the same service. He said that he had submitted a proposal 
to the President in connection with a possible solution, and that this 
provided background for the present meeting. 

Chairman Gordon stated that the meeting of the Committee 
should have a limited purpose, i.e . to allow Chancellor Golino to 
gather information, to solicit formal bids, and to prepare a more 
full-developed proposal in the immediate future for consideration by

the Committee at its regular meeting on October 23. Chairman Gordon 
said that he hoped that the Committee would have enough budget 
detail and other information at that time to make a decision which 
would permit a contract with a suitable carrier by the time of the 
November meeting of the full Board. 

Trustee Pumphret said that it would be valuable at the 
present meeting to ascertain and examine the assumptions and con- 
ditions which campus planning must take into account in connection 
with the development of a suitable proposal. President Wood agreed, 
saying that he had discussed the situation with the MBTA and had 
indicated to the Authority that their estimate appeared to be so 
high that the University would need to examine other possibilities. 
In response to a question from Trustee Crowley, President Wood said 
that there was no intention to exclude the MBTA from consideration, 
but that the Authority would need to try hard to give a better price 
for the service required. In accordance with Trustee Pumphret 's 
request, Chancellor Golino then asked Mr. Rawn to summarize for the 
Committee present information with regard to possible demand for the 
service, costs, and the possibilities of parking fee revenue to 
support these costs. 

Mr. Rawn reported that studies of demand indicated service 
would require the regular availability of a core fleet of five buses 
during the regular academic week of five days, with four additional 
buses on call for high-demand levels. Mr. Rawn reported that pre- 
liminary inquiries suggested that private carriers would be likely 
to charge between $130,000 and $160,000 per year for such service. 
He said that the MBTA first estimate indicated that operating 
charges by the Authority for similar service would be $245,000 per 
year. To provide a separate terminal for the shuttle bus service at 
Columbia Station, the MBTA would require capital outlay of $52,000 to 
be made by the University, while it appeared likely that the private 
carriers could provide a similar terminal for between $15,000 and 
$25,000. Mr. Rawn described to the Committee the plans for a 
schedule of parking fee charges currently approved at the campus 
level. He said that, in addition to a two-dollar flat registration 
fee for parking, a per day fee of $1^50 was estimated to be able to 
generate approximately $345,000 per year, and that this would be 
sufficient both to support the shuttle bus system and to pay for the 
operating and other costs of the parking system. 

In relation to the information provided by Mr. Rawn, sub- 
stantial discussion ensued. At the conclusion of the discussion it 
was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend to the Board of Trustees that the 

Chancellor of the University of Massachusetts at

President Wood reported briefly on current developments of 
interest, including the fact that the Fiscal Year 1975 Maintenance 
Budget had been generally well received as to form and content by the 
executive departments of the Commonwealth to which it has been trans 
mitted thus far. 

The President stated that the Committee on Buildings and 
Grounds, together with Chairman Healey, would be meeting on 
October 17 to view the model of the Columbia Point Campus prepared by 
the architectural consultant, Benjamin Thompson Associates. He 
remarked that the model itself does not help to provide answers to 
such questions as contiguous land use, and that an economic feasi- 
bility study must be undertaken next. In the interests of keeping 
all Trustees closely informed, the President, with the concurrence 
of Trustee Knowles, asked that the full membership of the Board be 
notified that they are welcome at the October 17 meeting of the 
Committee on Buildings and Grounds. 

Upon inquiry from Trustee Pumphret and Chairman Healey, 
President Wood stated that Benjamin Thompson Associates had been 
retained as the architectural consultant to the University on penin- 
sular development at Columbia Point, and is the University's contri- 
bution to the group assembled by the Office of the Mayor to address 
the entire range of issues associated with the development of the 
peninsula. 

Trustee Pumphret voiced his concern that, in view of the 
policy implications of any University action at Columbia Point,

the Trustees had not been consulted prior to the engagement of an 
architectural consultant. He stated that he was not addressing him- 
self to the technical merits of the project at hand, but rather to 
his strong feeling that more timely consultation with the Board 
should have taken place. Chairman Healey endorsed Trustee Pumphret's 
remarks, citing the need for better communication. 

The President then turned to Chancellor Golino for a dis- 
cussion of transportation matters at the Columbia Point campus. The 
Chancellor reported that the invitation for public bids on the pro- 
posed bus shuttle had been made. Treasurer Johnson stated that the 
MBTA as well as private carriers had been asked to bid, and that the 
specifications ask for a basic fleet of four buses, with options to 
request additional buses at specified rates. Routes and schedules 
have been specified, but are subject to negotiation with the success- 
ful bidder based on experience. Adequate provisions for termination 
of the agreement have also been made. 

President Wood stated that four meetings have been held 
with the Dean and heads of departments at UM/Worcester, in order to 
develop alternative recommendations for the Board on faculty-practice 
compensation, and asked Vice President Edelman to report. 

Vice President Edelman stated that based on his study of 
other medical schools, some form of faculty-practice plan is appro- 
priate, the other alternatives being either a straight salary with 
practice forbidden, or with practice unregulated. Three questions 
that must be addressed in considering a faculty-practice plan are: 
(1) the relationship to the conflict of interest laws in the Common- 
wealth; (2) new Medicare and Medicaid regulations which will be 
forthcoming from the federal government; and (3) the policy and 
structure of the plan itself, and the extent to which the Board will 
be able to know sufficient detail before approving a plan, given the 
fact that to a certain extent the success of any given plan can be 
measured only by experience. The policy issues involved in formu- 
lating a plan, as identified by Vice President Edelman, are: (1) the 
formula for compensation, both as to total amount, and the relative 
proportion of State salary and clinical fee monies; (2) the compensa- 
tion of the Dean and heads of departments from clinical fees; and 
(3) the governance of the plan itself. 

Expanding upon remarks by Trustee Croce, Trustee Pumphret 
inquired about the mechanism for involving the Commissioners of 
Mental Health and Public Health, as Trustees, in medically related 
matters coming before the Board. Chairman Healey noted the provi- 
sion that ad hoc medical members may be consulted, and Trustees Pum- 
phret and Troy urged that the physician members of the Board be 
specifically included in medically related matters coming before any 
committees of the Board. 

By consent of its members, the Committee then went into 
executive session to discuss nominations for honorary degrees to be 
awarded at UM/Amherst. Chancellor Bromery presented a list of

twenty-nine nominees forwarded by the UM/Amherst Advisory Committee

were endorsed by the Committee for submission to the full Board.

tee, the meeting adjourned at 12:15 p.m.

The meeting was called to order by Chairman Troy at 
12:45 p.m. 

Chancellor Bromery presented the Graduation Lists - 
September 1, 1973 , UM/Amherst (Doc. T74-027), which included under- 
graduate, graduate, and continuing education students. Most of 
these students, the Chancellor notes, completed their degree require 
ments during the past summer. He observed that the distribution of 
degrees awarded with honors was quite even across disciplines, and 
that the observable recent increase in the percentage of degrees 
awarded with honors reflected the improved academic preparation and 
heightened motivation of the students the University is attracting 
and admitting. 

The question of the numbers of students who are com- 
pleting their degree requirements in fewer than the traditional four 
years was raised as one on which it would be useful to have current 
data. Related to that, Chairman Troy noted that the development of 
the University's medical school now presents an opportunity for the 
University, operating as a system, to investigate a shortened under- 
graduate - medical school curriculum, as has been done elsewhere, 
and urged that this be studied. President Wood remarked that the 
"graduate school stretch-out" is a real problem and merits con- 
sidered investigation.

The Chairman then turned to the Agreement Between the 
University of Massachusetts and the Albert- Ludwigs-University , 
Freiburg, Germany (Doc. T74-026) , which was presented by President 
Wood. 

The President briefly recounted the history of the coop- 
erative relationship between the University of Massachusetts and the I 
University at Freiburg, which now includes student, faculty and other 
scholarly exchanges. After further discussion, it was moved, 
seconded, and 

VOTED: To recommend to the Board of Trustees adoption of 
the Comprehensive Agreement and Supplementary 
Articles between the University of Massachusetts 
and Albert- Ludwigs-Universitaet im Breisgau, as 
contained in Document T74-026. 

Trustee Boyden brought up the matter of the differential 
in tuition between the public and private institutions of higher 
education in the Commonwealth, and asked for guidance in formulating 
a proper response when inquiries are made on this sensitive issue. 

President Wood replied that in December of 1971 he address- 
ed the New England Association of Schools and Colleges on "The 
Inevitable Alliance", in which he identified five areas for public- 
private collaboration, ranging from planning through graduate student 
exchange. More recently, he said, he released his letter to 
Speaker David Bartley of the Massachusetts House of Representatives, 
in which he called for a significantly increased level of student 
tuition aid. 

While emphasizing the constructive approach he feels this 
University is taking, the President further expressed himself on 
certain notions which he feels should be borne in mind. The first, 
he said, is the fact that some private institutions "use the factor 
of our growth as an excuse for their own malperformance," and that he 
has gone on record as saying that he is not in favor of supporting 
"academic Lockheeds." Second, he cited the fact that in Massachu- 
setts most private colleges and universities draw heavily on out-of- 
state students. Finally, the percentage of college-bound high 
school graduates in Massachusetts is very low; it is, in fact, below 
the national average. Hence, there are large numbers of students in 
this State who would not consider going on for a baccalaureate 
degree if it were not for the existence of this University and 
relatively low tuition. 

President Wood then turned to the issue of student aid as 
it relates to this larger question, and asked Vice President Edelman 
to comment. Vice President Edelman said that for the State to make

an impact on the need for student aid, additional annual expenditures 
perhaps on the order of $25-30 million would be required, most of 
which would probably go to the private institutions. He further 
remarked that if we are vigorous in our defense of low tuition for 
public institutions, as he feels we should be, it would not then be 
inconsistent to favor making it possible for a student to select a 
private institution, where the constraint is a financial one. This, 
he added, is particularly so in a state like Massachusetts where 
approximately 60 per cent of the available seats are in private 
institutions. 

Vice President Edelman concluded by saying that the Univer- 
sity has negotiated the first draft of an equal opportunity plan with 
representatives of private colleges and universities, whereby money 
would be provided to help students meet all costs, not only tuition, 
associated with a private college education. At the same time, he 
said, "low tuition should be preserved as the best guarantee that has 
been devised by man so far of getting higher education to masses of 
people who want it but can't pay for it." 

Chancellor Golino, while noting that the future educa- 
tional program of UM/Boston is not yet fully determined, asserted 
that in making that determination he will be influenced principally 
by the needs of the students. To make the University's program 
deficient in any important program areas because those areas are 
already covered by others would, he said, be an educational disser- 
vice to the low- and moderate-income people of the Boston area whom 
UM/Boston is committed to serving. 

At the request of President Wood, Father Walsh addressed 
himself to this issue, and began by noting that it is a national 
problem. And while two national publications in the higher educa- 
tion field have cited Massachusetts as experiencing great conflict 
between public and private institutions, it in fact has less conflict 
and a greater spirit of cooperation than is found in almost any other 
state. 



Father Walsh further observed 
students are often rather well-served by 
at the private institutions, it is the f 
$15,000 income range who find tuition at 
their reach and, at the same time, do no 
tional forms of student aid. It is the 
he said, who often attend a public insti 
alternative. 



that while capable low-income 

the financial aid programs 
amilies in the $10,000- 

private institutions beyond 
t usually qualify for tradi- 
children of these families, 
tution as the only available 



Chancellor Bromery then presented what he acknowledged to 
be a minority viewpoint, and argued that by raising the ceiling of 
eligibility for student aid, we would in effect be creating yet 
another class of welfare recipient, with all of the negative feelings 
that engenders, often on the part of the recipients themselves.

President Wood acknowledged the merits of that position, 
and stated that he views student loan programs as dysfunctional for 
similar reasons, since families which are already faced with heavy 
deferred payment demands on their incomes simply are not likely to 
go further into debt for a college education. 

At the conclusion of this discussion, Trustee Boyden 
requested that the Office of the President prepare for Trustee con- 
sumption a summary fact sheet on the issue. Vice President Edelman 
agreed to circularize two documents now in draft form, as well as 
other data and material that may be helpful.

The meeting was called to order at 3:05 p.m. by Chairman 
Knowles, who asked President Wood to comment on the agenda for the 
meeting. 

President Wood informed the Committee that the meeting was 
being held in the office of Benjamin Thompson Associates, Architects, 
in order that the Committee could view the model of the Columbia 
Point Peninsula prepared by them. President Wood said that the 
architects have given the future development of the peninsula 
serious analysis and have prepared a rendering of one possible plan 
for this development. The work of the Thompson firm is the Univer- 
sity's contribution to the Mayor's committee on the development of 
the peninsula, a multi-agency undertaking. The whole plan is still 
in a very flexible stage of development. 

President Wood also stated that the University regards 
Phase II construction at the Columbia Point campus as vital — includ- 
ing College Buildings 030 and 040, the gymnasium, and the arts and 
sciences building (080/2) . Working drawings on Building 030 and the 
gymnasium are nearly complete, and these buildings could go through 
in the emergency capital outlay appropriation. If forced to a 
priority list because of competing needs for capital outlay, the 
classroom building would have to come first. 

Chairman Knowles then asked Chancellor Golino to report on 
the progress of Phase I construction at UM/Boston. Chancellor Golino 
stated that Phase I is coming to a conclusion but that it is 



I 



I

essential that the contractors be reminded of the urgency of comple- 
tion of the buildings in time for the beginning of the next semester. 
He distributed to the Committee a document prepared by the Bureau of 
Building Construction indicating the expected completion of the 
various rooms in College I, College II, the Science Building and the 
Library. 

With regard to Phase II construction, Chancellor Golino 
reported that drawings for the gymnasium are nearly completed and 
drawings for College III will be finished in January. 

Chancellor Golino mentioned the charge to him by the Board UM/Boston —

UM/Boston — 

Chancellor's 

Comments 



of Trustees to obtain bids on a transportation system so that a 
recommendation could be brought to the Finance Committee on October 
23. He explained that, since he had been asked to obtain bids from 
public as well as private carriers, it had been impossible to meet 
this deadline, and that he had requested a postponement of the meet- 
ing in order to allow time for evaluating bids. At Chancellor 
Golino T s request William Rawn, Assistant Chancellor, then described 
the major features of the proposed transportation system, which is 
intended to link the MBTA Columbia Station with the campus by using 
shuttle buses. 

Following a brief discussion relating to Mr. Rawn's pre- 
sentation, Chairman Knowles called on Mr. Stockwell of UM/Worcester 
to comment on the status of progress on the Worcester campus. Mr. 
Stockwell referred to his memorandum to Vice President Robinson 
regarding the delay in receipt of interior elevations for the teach- 
ing hospital and alternative designs for the large interior court- 
yard, and asked that these two items be deferred until the next 
meeting of the Buildings and Grounds Committee. 

At the request of President Wood, Mr. Roth informed the 
Committee that the architects, Campbell, Aldrich & Nulty, had 
responded to the request of the Committee with one alternative 
design, but that he had persuaded them to explore additional 
approaches. Mr. Roth expects that drawings of these alternatives 
will be ready at the time of the next meeting of the Committee. 

Mr. Stockwell commented that the hospital is still on 
schedule, which will permit starting of the clinics in the spring 
and the hospital in the summer of 1975. 

Chairman Knowles noted that the Board of Trustees had 
voted in September to accept the site design for the area around the 
teaching hospital and the medical school, which includes a possible 
site for a two-stage parking garage. She stated that there are 
three possible ways of constructing such a garage: (1) through 
capital outlay, (2) through the Building Authority or (3) through 
some leasing arrangement with a private firm. She said that no 
analysis has yet been made of the economics or the precise location 
of the parking facility, and that it has been suggested that the

After discussion of the various problems involved, on

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that a feasi-

be made, such study to be conducted by the Building 
Authority, the wording of such vote to be subject 
to advice of legal counsel. 

Vice President Robinson then introduced the subject of the 
development of the Columbia Point peninsula. She reported that 
since August Mr. Andrew Olins of the Mayor's office has been working 
with city and state agencies and concerned organizations in the com- 
munity to explore alternatives for the future of this area, and that 
technical and policy groups have been at work as well. The finds of 
these groups have been transmitted to Benjamin Thompson Associates 
to aid them in developing alternative plans. 

Mrs. Robinson then introduced Mr. Thomas Green of the 
architect's office, who reviewed current land use in the peninsula 
area and pointed out elements considered desirable in a viable new 
community: shopping areas, recreational areas, a town center, a 
"loop-road" boulevard, and new and rehabilitated housing placed so 
as to create several distinct neighborhoods. Mr. Green stated that 
the site is one of the most desirable in the city because of its 
location at the edge of the water, but that harbor activities have 
been underdeveloped. In connection with the University, the archi- 
tects have suggested a student center and hostel and a possible con- 
ference center. They also suggest development of common athletic 
facilities to be shared by both the community and the educational 
institutions. 

It was felt important that any development not uproot the 
present residents of the area, and that it would be desirable for 
people of all income levels and ages to be represented in the pro- 
jected peninsula community. 

Mr. Healey emphasized that the role of the University in 
development plans for the area is simply to be of assistance through 
offering suggestions. 

Two of the problems of the Columbia Point area at present 
were identified as the density of population in the housing project 
and the feeling of isolation experienced by the residents.

It was felt that there was definitely a need for new 
housing, but that it would be more desirable to have fewer housing 
units in one community and more neighborhood communities. 

At the end of his presentation Mr. Green invited the 
| Committee to view the development model and answered questions from 
the Committee.

Campus Center, University of Massachusetts 

Amherst, Massachusetts 



PRESENT: Trustees and Trustee Staff : Trustees Apostola, Boyden, 
Cagle, and Haigis; Mr. Whittaker 

Administrators, Faculty, Staff and Invited Guests : 

Office of the President : Vice President Edelman, Mr. 
Keith 

UM/Amherst : Chancellor Bromery, Vice Chancellor and

Trustee Boyden convened the meeting at 12:30 p.m. in the 
absence of Committee Chairman Shaler. The primary purpose of the 
meeting was for the Committee to acquire background information on 
matters related to University alcoholic beverage policy and admis- 
sions and financial aid policy. 



Review of Univer- 
sity-wide 
Guidelines on 
Alcoholic 
Beverage Policy 



Vice Chancellor Gage called the Committee's attention to 
Assistant Counsel O'Leary's draft guidelines on rules and regulations 
relevant to alcoholic beverages at the Amherst campus. This document 
is a redraft of legal principles in the proposed Amherst campus 
guidelines, and they will be returned to various student constitu- 
encies for comments . 

Dr. Keith suggested that the Amherst campus provide policy 
recommendations for review by the Committee on Student Affairs at its 
next meeting on November 15, so that Committee recommendations could 
be presented to the Executive Committee on November 21. Chancellor 
Bromery explained that such a policy statement should go through the 
usual governance procedures before being reviewed by the Committee. 
Since an interim, procedure was in operation, it was suggested that 
normal governance procedures be implemented as soon as possible so 
that their recommendations can be discussed by the Student Affairs 
Committee. 

Chancellor Golino requested that the Boston campus not be 
required to adopt an alcoholic beverage policy until the campus has 
moved to Columbia Point. Vice President Edelman recommended that the

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Committee on Student Affairs settle the issues of the alcoholic 
beverage guidelines for the Amherst campus first, and then use this 
as a base for a possible pan-University policy. 

- The Committee then discussed the University's admissions 

and financial aid policies. Vice President Edelman expressed 
President Wood's hope that the Committee on Student Affairs would 
review the University's present admissions and financial aid policies 
in view of shifting patterns and new data. Representatives from each 
campus were asked to give the Committee a summary of their present 
admissions and financial aid policies. 

Dean Tunis of the Amherst Admissions Office reported on a 
questionnaire sent out last spring to 1,100 secondary school guid- 
ance counselors which is being condensed into a master report. The 
Dean commented on several admissions trends which included a drop in 
freshman applications at the rate of 5 to 6% per year over the past 
several years, an increase in student applications from two-year 
schools, an increase in preferred admissions, and various other 
changes in student interest. 

He spoke of the need for more career counseling, especially 
at the secondary level, and referred to an increase in the number of 
freshmen dropping out of the University. He explained that the 
question of student dropouts is a difficult one to evaluate, since 
most of them state only that they have "personal reasons" for not 
returning. The Admissions Office at Amherst feels it is important tc 
recruit more women and minority students, and the Dean explained to 
the Committee admissions procedures for recruiting these students. 
A 50-50 male to female ratio is seen as desirable. 

Chancellor Golino then gave his views on admissions and 
financial aid policy. He explained that the Boston admissions policy 
was not yet clearly defined and the Chancellor suggested several 
questions which the Committee might discuss at a future time. 

Director of Admissions Costello gave the Committee a 
summary of admissions statistics at UM/Boston, explaining that a 
recruiting staff of 4 or 5 people visit schools within a 30-mile 
radius of Boston, from which students are selected on the basis of 
high school record, recommendations, and traditional standards. In 
1973, there were 8,000 applicants to UM/Boston of which 50 percent 
were accepted. The average SAT spread at UM/Boston is in the middle 
400 and 500 range, with 95% of the applicants coming from within a 
10-mile radius of Boston. 

Dean Costello also commented on the Special Admissions 
program at UM/Boston, through which approximately 200 disadvantaged 
students, mostly black, are recruited each year. 

As at the Amherst campus, there are a large number of 
transfer students from community colleges attending UM/Boston, and

the interchange program between UM/Amherst and UM/Boston equals 
approximately 300 students a year. 

Associate Dean Saunders then reported on problems of admis- 
sion at the Medical School, where 900 Massachusetts residents applied 
for 40 places. Eighty-five percent of the applicants are men and 
some 15% are women. Of those students accepted thus far at UM/ 
Worcester, two-thirds have completed the baccalaureate degree with 
honors, had undergraduate cumulative point averages of 3.25, and rank 
in the 75th percentile nationally on the Medical College Admissions 
Test. 

Mr. Dent, Director of Financial Aid at Amherst, distributed 
a background paper on Student Financial Aid programs and stated that, 
like most universities, UM/Amherst does not have enough money (less 
than $110 per student) for aid purposes, and said that the late 
availability of state financial aid money makes it difficult to 
appropriate these funds. 

Mr. Felton, Director of Financial Aid at UM/Boston, agreed 
with Mr. Dent on the difficulties caused by the late release of state 
financial aid money saying that this reduced UM/Boston' s competitive- 
ness. He also stated that at UM/Boston there are over 1,000 
veterans, and that 80 percent of the campus interviews are with older 
adults who are self-supporting and must be seen as having their own 
set of financial problems. 

Associate Dean Saunders reiterated the difficulties caused 
by insufficient aid money for students and said that many of the 
medical students come to UM/Worcester already as much as $6,000 in 
debt. Fifty percent of the applicants need financial aid of approx- 
imately $1,500 per year; projections for next year indicate a deficit 
of $40,000 to $50,000 in unmet student needs. 

In conclusion, members of the Committee expressed the feel- 
ing that more discussion was necessary on these topics. It was 
suggested that each campus prepare additional background information 
for distribution to the Committee and for use in subsequent consider- 
ation. 

The meeting adjourned at 3:00 p.m. with a reminder that the 
next meeting of the Trustee Committee on Student Affairs would be on 
November 15.

MINUTES OF MEETING OF TRUSTEE COMMITTEE ON LONG-RANGE PLANNING 

October 24, 1973; 1:00 p.m. 

Office of the President, University of Massachusetts 

One Washington Mall, Boston, Massachusetts 



PRESENT: Trustees and Trustee Staff : Chairman Rowland, President 
Wood; Trustees Anrig and Carlson; Secretary Patterson, 
Mr. DeWolfe 

Administrators, Faculty, Staff and Invited Guests : 

UM/Boston : Chancellor Golino 

Office of the President : Vice President Robinson, Rev. 
Walsh, Messrs. Cooley and Kadzis 



1:00 p.m. 



The meeting was called to order by Chairman Rowland at 



4205 



The Chairman began by stating her expectation that the role 
of the Committee would be to establish the long-range planning con- 
text in which major policy decisions by the Board and its other com- 
mittees on such issues as physical development, enrollment, the 
budget and capital outlay, and new programs would take place. She 
emphasized her view that the Board should be actively involved in the 
earliest stages of University planning rather than reacting after 
the fact. 

Chairman Rowland asked for comments from President Wood, 
who stated that he saw the Committee as the planning arm of the 
Board, and noted that this carried with it the connotation of com- 
mitment to rationality, analysis and facts, rather than taking 
positions. He added that the two issues to which the Committee 
would begin to address itself at this meeting — public-private 
cooperation and future enrollments — were appropriate examples of 
topics where dispassionate inquiry was called for. 

Vice President Robinson distributed a memorandum from 
former UM/Boston Chancellor Broderick to President Wood entitled 
"Recommendations Related to Academic and Physical Planning at UM/ 
Boston," dated June 19, 1972; and a memorandum from Chancellor 
Golino to Chairman Rowland on "Long-Range Planning at UM/Boston," 
dated October 2, 1973, which refers to the earlier memorandum. 
These supplemented two documents distributed earlier: "Background 
Information on College IV at University of Massachusetts/Boston," 
dated July 23, 1973 (Trustee Doc. T74-014) ; and a working paper, 
"The University of Massachusetts: Issues of Public and Private 
Higher Education," prepared by Franklin Patterson, as Frank L. Boyder 
Professor of the University, for the meeting of the Trustee Council 
on February 27, 1973.

Chairman Rowland then turned to the Rev. Michael P. Walsh, 
S.J., Academic Advisor to the President, for a discussion on the 
issue of cooperation among public and private institutions of higher 
education in the Commonwealth. In reviewing some of the findings of 
recent studies, he cited data on shifts in enrollment patterns and 
the financial condition of certain "clusters" of private institutions 
and identified as among immediate unmet needs what he characterized 
as "a complementary definition of our missions;" a vehicle for 
public-private policy making; and a uniform system of data-gathering, 
including a standard cost-reporting system. 

Considerable discussion followed, during which it was noted 
that there are student reasons for some duplication of programs by 
public and private institutions, but not by different components of 
the public sector. Chancellor Golino remarked that any cooperative 
arrangements must proceed with a realization of the need for UM/ 
Boston to fully develop as a campus, and not simply in response to 
needs that are unmet by other institutions. 

Chairman Rowland called next upon Mr. Gary Cooley, Director 
of Analytical Studies in the President's Office, who presented some 
of the enrollment and other demographic data currently available. He 
stated that while there have been changes in the types and numbers of 
students now gaining access to higher education, there is a paucity 
of firm data on them. We do not know, he said, what kinds of faculty 
work-loads these students will induce, or what kinds of programs 
they will choose. He concluded by citing the need for a long-range 
University plan on enrollments that is specific as to level and 
program. 

During the ensuing discussion, Secretary Patterson pointed 
out that there are certain kinds of planning questions that cannot 
be derived from numerical data as, for example, the determination of 
what kind of institution UM/Boston should be. President Wood 
asserted that for other kinds of planning, such as that required by 
the Budget Committee, enrollment projections are needed. He said 
that, for purposes of discussion by this Committee, postulates and 
guidelines on the development of the University should be set down 
and issues related to the state and community colleges should be 
identified, all within a metropolitan context. Turning to UM/Boston 
specifically, discussion noted that there is need for assessment of 
where the campus is going academically, what kind of student it is 
interested in, and what kind of faculty it will seek to recruit. 

The meeting concluded with general agreement that for 
future meetings the Committee could appropriately discuss the 
missions and submissions of the University, as well as planning for 
specific programs such as Fine Arts.

The meeting was called to order by Chairman Gordon at 



9:40 a.m. 



At the Chairman's invitation, Chancellor Golino addressed 
himself to the Transportation Proposal for UM/Boston (Doc. T74-034), 
and the supplementary Shuttle Bus Bid Analysis (Doc. T74-034A) . 
The Chancellor called the Committee's attention to the thorough and 
capable staff work of Mr. Peter Sheinfeld, a student at UM/Boston, 
in assisting his own staff in the preparation of the transportation 
materials, and shared his observation that Mr. Sheinfeld "has become 
a real expert in the field". 

Vice Chancellor Hamilton and Assistant Chancellor Rawn 
discussed the four bids received which appeared to meet the Univer- 
sity's specifications, noting that all questions of carriers' 
ability to perform and to post a performance bond, along with the 
union question, had not yet been resolved. The fact that these 
questions must be fully answered within the next week was expressed 
to the Committee, and accordingly, Chairman Gordon asked that a 
Special Meeting of the Finance Committee be convened at 11:00 a.m. 
on Wednesday, November 7, 1973, prior to the regular monthly meeting 
of the Board of Trustees in Worcester. 

During the ensuing discussion, Trustee Pumphret moved the 
amendment of two proposed Votes relative to the establishment of a 
parking fee of $1.50 per vehicle per day, as contained in Doc. T74- 
034, to read "parking fee not to exceed $1.50 per vehicle per day", 
in order to provide for possible downward revisions of the parking 
fee based on experience. Accordingly, it was moved, seconded and

VOTED : To recommend that the Board of Trustees accept 
the gift of $4,000 and such other funds as may 
be donated by the Class of 1973 to the Amherst 
campus Advisory Committee for Disabled Students. 

And it was further 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board of Trustees approve 
the deposit of these funds in the Advisory 
Committee for Disabled Students Trust Fund 
(#08-024120) to be expended in accordance with 
the recommendations of the Advisory Committee 
for Disabled Students and the approval of the 
Director, University Health Services. 

Chairman Gordon next asked Treasurer Johnson to report on 
the Jeff Morgan Memorial Scholarship Fund, UM/Amherst (Doc. T74- 
029). Mr. Johnson related the circumstances of the development of 
the fund, saying that it had been established in memory of a young 
musician who had a strong interest in the University. After brief 
discussion it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend acceptance of the Jeff Morgan Memorial 
Scholarship Fund, in the amount of $3,015.00, as 
an Endowment Fund for the purpose of regularly 
awarding one or more scholarships of $150.00 to 
an incoming freshman music major who is going to 
specialize as a wind instrumentalist. Income 
not used for awards during the fiscal year shall 
be returned to principal on June 30. Benefits 
from this fund are restricted to students in 
attendance at the Amherst campus. 

The proposed Temporary Use of North Village (Project XIII ) 
Apartments, UM/Amherst (Doc. T74-031) was then discussed by Vice 
Chancellor Campion, who stated that because of the apartment 
vacancies existing in North Village and the need to use them as 
dormitory facilities, this solution was being proposed. It was 
accordingly moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that, if 
adopted by the University of Massachusetts 
Building Authority, vacant apartments at North 
Village (UMBA Project XIII) may from time to time, 
and at the discretion of the Chancellor of the 
Amherst campus, be filled by students who have 
applied for residence in dormitory housing but 
have been unable to obtain such residence due to 
temporary oversubscription. The rate will be 
that charged to the largest number of students 
residing in dormitory housing and will cover the 
period of the normal school year only. The rate

Vice Chancellor Gage next presented the proposal for an

(Doc. T74-033). He stated that this was a proposed amendment to an 
earlier Vote of the Board of Trustees establishing the undergraduate 
student activities fee for the 1973-74 academic year at UM/Amherst; 

and reported that the undergraduate student body at Amherst had 
voted by referendum to fund the undergraduate student yearbook - the 
Index - from the Student Activities Fee rather than from sales, as 
had originally been planned, and that the only way for this to be 
accomplished is through a $3.00 increase in that fee for the second 
semester of the current academic year. Following brief discussion, 
during which Chairman Gordon requested that Trustees be provided 
with copies of the Index , as they had been until recent years, it 
was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board of Trustees, acting 
at the request of the undergraduate Student 
Senate, amend its Vote of June 6, 1973, relative 
to the establishment of a Student Activities Fee 
at Amherst as follows: 

The Student Activities Fee for the second 
semester of the 1973-74 academic year, pre- 
viously authorized at $23.50, shall be set 
at $26.50. This will represent a total 
yearly Student Senate Tax of $48.50, and a 
fee of $1.50 for the Distinguished Visitors 
Program. 

There being no further business to come before the 
Committee, the meeting adjourned at 11:30 a.m.

The meeting was called to order at 11:00 a.m. by Trustee 
Pumphret, who had been designated by Chairman Gordon to chair the 
Special Meeting in his absence. 

Chancellor Golino began the discussion on the Shuttle Bus 
Bid Analysis, UM/Boston (Doc. T74-034A) , by noting that since the 
regular meeting of the Committee on October 31, his office had pro- 
gressed in its negotiations with the low bidder for the bus service, 
He reported that the carrier had not yet, however, received final 
approval on a loan he would require in order to expand his capabil- 
ities to meet the bid specifications, and therefore had not yet 
secured a performance bond. The Chancellor concluded by requesting 
that he be empowered to award a contract to the lowest qualified 
bidder, after consultation with the Treasurer of the University and 
the Chairman of the Trustee Finance Committee. 

Discussion followed on whether this was the proper way to 
proceed, after which Trustee Rowland moved the proposed Vote. 
Trustee Crowley moved amendment of the Vote to include consultation 
by the Chancellor with the Chairman of the Board of Trustees and 
the President prior to awarding the contract. After further dis- 
cussion, the amended Vote was seconded and it was 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that a 
contract to provide shuttle bus service for 
the University of Massachusetts at Boston be 
awarded by the Chancellor to the lowest

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that the

the name of the University. 

The Chairman inquired about the source of the funds to be 
advanced against future revenues of the Transportation and Parking 
Trust Fund for construction of terminal facilities. Treasurer 
Johnson replied that the Trustee Trust Fund Interest Reserve could 
be used for this purpose, and that it contained sufficient funds to 
permit construction to begin. Trustee Rowland moved the proposed 
Vote, amended to identify the source of funds, and after being 
seconded, it was accordingly 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that the 

Treasurer of the University be directed to advance 
from the Trustee Trust Fund Interest Reserve the 
necessary funds against future revenues to the 
Transportation and Parking Trust Fund for immediate 
construction and provision of all facilities 
necessary for the system to be made operational. 

The Chairman then turned to consideration of the proposed 
lease of land from the Gulf Oil Corporation for use as a shuttle 
bus turn-around, and boarding and departure areas, as described in 
Doc. T74-034. Trustee Pumphret inquired whether improvements by 
the University on the Gulf-owned land could be initiated prior to 
the commencement of the lease on January 1, 1974, and Assistant 
Counsel O'Leary replied in the affirmative. 

Trustee Cagle commended Chancellor Golino and his staff 
for their efforts in developing a transportation package to meet 
the needs of the new Columbia Point Campus. He explained, however, 
that in accordance with the questions he raised at the October 31 
meeting of the Finance Committee, relative to the corporate prac- 
tices of the Gulf Oil Corporation in the nations of southern Africa 
as they may relate to the Trustee-approved guidelines on the 
University's investment program, he wishes to be recorded as voting 
against the execution of the lease. 

After brief discussion it was moved, seconded and

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that for the 
purpose of providing a turn-around and boarding 
and departure area for shuttle bus service to the 
campus at Columbia Point, as more particularly set 
forth in Trustee Document T74-034, the Chancellor 
of the University of Massachusetts at Boston, or his 
designee, is authorized to negotiate a lease of 
approximately 32,000 square feet of land owned by 
the Gulf Oil Corporation and situated near the 
Columbia Station, said lease term to commence about 
January 1, 1974, and expire on or about June 30, 1978 
Further, that the Chancellor of the University of 
Massachusetts at Boston, after consultation with the 
Treasurer of the University, be empowered and 
authorized to execute a lease arrangement for and 
on behalf of the University in furtherance of said 
purpose upon successful completion of said 
negotiations. 

Trustee Cagle is recorded as voting "No." 

There being no further business to come before the Com- 
mittee, the meeting adjourned at 11:55 a.m.

The meeting was called to order at 12:40 p.m. by Chairman 
Shaler, who expressed his sadness at learning of the two tragic 
deaths which recently occurred at the Amherst campus. 

Vice Chancellor Gage spoke to the University Alcoholic 
Beverage Policy, which is to go before the Student Matters Commit- 
tee on the Amherst campus and then the Student Senate before being 
submitted to the Board of Trustees at its February meeting. 

Mr. Dent distributed questionnaires on the Student 
Resource Survey, stating that if UM/Amherst is going to be able to 
demonstrate the need for additional student aid — and the need is 
definitely there — some vehicle will be needed to provide the 
background information, and that the information gained would be 
used in application for federal and state funds and before commit- 
tees of the State Legislature. Vice President Edelman commented 
that this survey was an important instrument for use in making the 
case for more student aid funds. 

Members of the Committee questioned how the base level of 
State aid could be increased without increasing the tuition level. 
Vice President Edelman estimated that there was a 40 to 60 million 
dollar backlog of unmet need in the State and to raise tuition would 
be questionable public policy. 

Chairman Shaler suggested that perhaps the University's 
use of this survey would be strengthened if it had the cooperation 
of state colleges, community colleges, and possibly private insti- 
tutions. Mr. Dent explained that before this could be made a 
joint endeavor additional University data must be developed, and 
stated that the final report should be ready by June 1.

COMMITTEE 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Mr. Costello posed some of the questions which face the 
Boston campus in admissions and financial aid policies: i.e., what 
percentage of students should be accepted from the city and what 
percentage from the suburbs; what is the University's commitment to 
minority students, transfer students, and community college students; 
and the matter of any changes in admissions standards. Mr. McDonald 
expressed the feeling that the campus must determine who is to go to 
UMass/Boston. Secretary Patterson stressed the need to define the 
long-term responsibility of the University and its overall pattern 
of service and Mr. Cooley agreed, saying that one cannot separate 
the admissions policy from the mission of the University and that 
this mission must be defined. 

Dr. Hayes, UM/Worcester , provided some student data from 
that campus including family income distribution and distribution 
of students by counties in Massachusetts, and explained that 50 
percent of the students were offered some financial aid. He stated 
that there were three Oriental students at the campus and that three 
black had been accepted but had chosen not to attend. The Committee 
expressed concern about the recruitment of and admissions policies 
for minority students at the Medical School and encouraged the Dean 
to reevaluate his admissions policies in this light. Chairman Shaler 
asked UM/Worcester for some specific information to be presented at 
the next meeting of the Student Affairs Committee. He asked: 
(1) that the black students who had been accepted be contacted and 
asked their reasons for not matriculating at UM/Worcester, (2) that 
a specific affirmative action plan with policies and goals be pre- 
sented, and (3) that information be furnished on the number of 
married students accepted at UM/Worcester, the number of graduates 
from UM/ Amherst and UM/Boston accepted, and additional information 
on family income levels. 

Vice Chancellor Gage explained some of the questions that 
were being reviewed on the Amherst campus and distributed background 
information for the Committee members. Questions under review at 
UM/ Amherst include: how to define the basis of selectivity; the need 
for admissions criteria other than College Boards, and the like; 
anticipation of quotas and enrollment limits on the basis of Univer- 
sity resources and job opportunities; and policy for transfer students 
from community colleges. Discussion followed on the acceptance of 
community college students and Vice Chancellor Gage explained that 
it was now the policy to accept any student who was recommended by 
the community college. He also explained that in order to adjust to 
enrollment ceilings this policy might have to be limited or 
redefined. 

Dr. Keith stated that within the next few weeks staff of 
the President's Office will meet with Student Affairs Officers on 
each campus to identify Admissions and Financial Aid Policy issues 
that need the attention of the Committee. To facilitate the estab- 
lishment of an agenda for the Committee, a list of policy issues 
regarding admissions and financial aid will be presented at the

The meeting was called to order at 1:05 p.m. by Chairman 



Rowland . 



The Chairman began the discussion on the future of the 
fine arts at the University by commenting that the new Fine Arts 
Center now being completed at UM/Amherst provides that campus with 
the chance to support the development of the arts throughout the 
University, the five-college area, and the entire Commonwealth. 
The Arts and Sciences building at Columbia Point, now in design, 
also represents a substantial commitment of University resources 
in the fine arts. 

At the Chairman's invitation, Vice Chancellor Gluckstern 
and Dean Allen of the Faculty of Humanities and Fine Arts spoke 
about planning for the new Center and about the developing depart- 
mental programs in art, music, and theater. These programs have 
a major production and performance orientation which is reflected 
in planning for the Center. They also described the role of the 
Fine Arts Council. 

Chancellor Golino and Dr. Freeland, Assistant Chancellor 
for Educational Planning, reviewed the general direction of the 
fine arts programs at the Columbia Point campus, noting that the 
space planning required for the fine arts component of Building 
080/2 had involved a major review of these programs during the

past year. The major emphasis of the departments is on under- 
graduate nonprofessional programs, particularly introductory 
courses for non-art majors. Both campuses have experienced 
increasing student demand for performance and studio as against 
history and theory classes. 

Chairman Rowland introduced the topic of a possible 
University Advisory Council on the Fine Arts, and stated that such 
a Council might be developed with the Trustee Council as a general 
model. She remarked that Massachusetts was unusually rich in pro- 
fessional talent in the arts, and that the involvement of recognized 
persons of stature and achievement could have a number of beneficial 
results for faculty and students as well as the cultural outreach 
efforts of the University. The importance of involving the campuses 
in the early stages of planning was noted. 

Chancellor Golino spoke of the discussions he has had 
with the group of Dorchester residents renovating the old Strand 
Theater for community use. He stated that, while they understand 
that he cannot commit any University funds to support their efforts, 
he is, both personally and as Chancellor, giving them other support 
and encouragement. UM/Boston faculty members have provided 
technical assistance, and the Chancellor expressed the hope and 
expectation that the 1700-seat capacity of the theater should permit 
joint campus-community sponsorship of noteworthy events. 

Chairman Rowland then turned to the continuing discussion 
of the missions of the University. Several analytical and con- 
ceptual approaches to the entire set of issues subsumed under 
"missions" were suggested and discussed. 

The Chairman concluded the discussion by stating that 
at the next meeting of the Committee, on December 17, the discus- 
sion of the Fine Arts Advisory Council and University missions 
would be carried forward, and adjourned the meeting at 3:30 p.m.

and stated that he would ask the Board of Trustees for concurrence 
in the nomination at its December meeting. Dr. Lynton expressed his 
feelings of pleasure and excitement with the prospect of the 
appointment . 

At the request of the President, Chancellor Bromery 
reported on the outcome of the UM/Amherst faculty union election 
held under the supervision of the State Labor Relations Commission 
on November 15 and 16 at the Amherst campus. With more than 97 
percent of eligible faculty voting, 510 ballots were cast in favor 
of MSA-MTA-AAUP representation, 718 against representation, 174 
ballots were challenged and two were voided. The totals include 
absentee ballots. The Chancellor stated that the task now at hand 
is to reconcile differences that developed during the campaign, and 
to move together toward a strengthened institution. Trustee 
Robertson and others emphasized the need to identify and address 
sources of dissatisfaction among the faculty.

employment to Peter H. Rossi as Professor of 
Sociology, University of Massachusetts at 
Amherst, effective September 1, 1974. 

Chairman Troy next addressed the Pierce College Program , 
School of Business Administration, UM/Amherst (Doc. T74-039), and 
began by voicing his concern and dismay, as well as surprise that 
the program had been implemented without Trustee approval. Dean 
Smith, School of Business Administration, explained the Adminis- 
trative oversights that had resulted in implementation prior to 
Trustee action, and assured the Committee that the principals had 
acted in good faith. 

The Pierce College Program, as presented by Dean Smith, 
is a two-year graduate curriculum leading to the degree of Master 
of Business Administration, taught by UM/Amherst School of Business 
faculty at Pierce College, Athens, Greece; and because it is 
taught by University of Massachusetts faculty, it is a University- 
awarded degree. Two UM/Amherst faculty members are now at Pierce 
College, affording them professional enrichment, as well as 
permitting visiting faculty to spend a year at UM/Amherst. After 
brief discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that it 
adopt the "Proposed Memorandum of Agreement: 
Pierce College (Athens, Greece) and the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts (Amherst)" as contained 
in Document T74-039, effective for a two-year 
period beginning September 1, 1973.

The proposed Transfer of Home Economics Units, UM/Amherst 
(Doc. T74-044) was then presented by Associate Provost Bischoff. 
The three proposed actions represented the final steps in the admin- 
istrative realignment of food- and nutrition-related units at 
UM/Amherst given general approval by the Board of Trustees on June 6, 
1973. Dr. Bischoff stated that, while the School of Home Economics 
would thereby be eliminated, its curricula and missions would be 
strengthened; and, indeed, the actions were initiated by the faculty. 

In response to a question from Chairman Troy, Associate 
Provost Bischoff stated that the major and degree in Home Economics 
would continue at UM/Amherst. President Wood inquired whether any 
savings in positions would be realized, and whether during consider- 
ation of the changes, complementarity with state and community 
college programs had been specifically strengthened. Dr. Bischoff 
replied that some short-term administrative cost savings would 
result, and that while the issue of complementarity had not been 
addressed in specific terms, none of the actions would preclude 
complementarity. It was accordingly moved, seconded and

has found at the Boston campus. Without the Institute, he said, 
the institution would have no involvement with area public schools, 
which provide the greatest number of students. He noted, however, 
that an increased commitment of resources would be required to 
sustain and foster the Institute. 

The Chancellor then introduced Dr. James Case, Director 
of the Institute, who distributed a Progress Report dated November, 
1973. He cited as the two major purposes of the Institute, "To 
improve the education of urban children by working intensively with 
groups of teachers and administrators in city school systems; and 
to enrich the education of UM/Boston students principally by 
fostering undergraduate programs that involve field experiences 
in city schools and child-serving agencies." 

It is principally the Boston schools with which the 
Institute has been collaborating, Dr. Case noted, and the academic 
departments which initiate and grant credit for the field experi- 
ences, with the Institute acting as a linking mechanism. 

The capabilities of the eleven-member Institute staff 
are supplemented as needed on a program basis by consultants or 
adjunct faculty members, and thus specific requests by school 
systems for technical assistance can be met without creating a 
large permanent staff. Dr. Case noted that his immediate prede- 
cessor as Director of the Institute, Dr. Gregory Anrig, is now 
Commissioner of Education for the Commonwealth, and thus maintains 
a connection with the University as Trustee. 

Brief descriptions were presented of programs operated 
jointly by the Institute and the Colleges at UM/Boston. These 
include the Sociology and Urban Social Service Program conducted 
with the Sociology Departments of Colleges I and II, which enrolls 
seventy students in supervised field placement at private or 
governmental agencies that work with children; a joint Institute- 
College I interdepartmental ethnic studies concentration — "Spanish- 
speaking People in Urban America" — planned for next semester; and 
others now being planned or currently in operation. 

In developing technical assistance programs with schools 
and agencies, Dr. Case stated, the Institute "tends to look for 
points where a new law or significant change within a school system 
requires that system to move in a way it has not moved before." 
He pointed to the program in bilingual education as an example. 
Other programs in special education, Boston's new "open-space 
schools" and the secondary schools were also discussed. 

Dr. Case pointed out that this is the last year that the 
Ford Foundation will provide significant financial support, which 
currently totals $245,700 — approximately half of the Institute's 
budget. The Institute has had intensive independent evaluation, 
the results of which are available for review. Explorations began

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

last spring, Dr. Case reported, on ways in which the capabilities 
of the Institute could be more closely linked with the needs of 
schools and agencies in the Columbia Point and Dorchester-South 
Boston areas. 

President Wood asked how the Institute might have an impact 
on the structure of education in Boston and the inner schools. 
Dr. Case stated that the problem of acceptance of outside people is 
a real one, but that discussions are under way with the Boston 
School Department, and the Institute will attempt to respond as 
requests are made. In response to an inquiry from Trustee Boyden, 
Dr. Case stated that, in the absence of a school of education at 
UM/Boston, the Institute is a means to help schools which prepare 
the students who come to the University, working through the school 
teachers and professional staff rather than directly with the 
students themselves. 

Chancellor Golino drew attention to the fact that, without 
the Institute, UM/Boston "would be completely cut off from the 
schools where 85 percent of the students come from." He emphasized 
his belief that the Institute was a useful mechanism for having an 
influence, through the teachers, on students who have the potential 
for college-level study and, therefore, was within the educational 
mission of UM/Boston and its community commitment. Trustee Cagle 
endorsed the Chancellor's remarks, and stated that he was impressed 
with the Institute's efforts to address itself to the quality of 
education in the schools. 

Chairman Troy inquired about the results of the evaluations 
that have been conducted. Dr. Case replied that they had learned 
that the services of the Institute are welcomed by the teachers, 
and are not duplicated by any other institutions in the area. He 
stated, however, that in working with the teachers and administra- 
tors in such long-term programs as those conducted by the Institute, 
the assessment of results is more qualitative than quantitative. 

Chairman Troy next turned to the proposed Change in 
Department Title from Department of Community Medicine to Depart- 



ment of Community and Family Medicine, UM/Worcester (Doc. T74-040) . 
Associate Dean Saunders stated that the Department of Community 
Medicine has been fostering activities in the field of Family 
Medicine, not only in the curriculum, but also in developing 
residencies for physicians who wish to practice in that area. 
President Wood expressed his feeling that moving in such a direction 
is a timely and valuable development. 

In response to a question from Trustee Boyden, Dr. 
Saunders stated that Family Medicine could be briefly defined as 
health care for family members of all ages, exclusive of major 
surgery. Dr. Clark, Chairman of the Department of Anatomy, added 
that Family Medicine emphasized maintenance of health and prevention 
of disease as a way of increasing the efficiency of health care,

and the cooperation of physicians with other health care specialists 
After further brief discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that it 
approve a change in the name of the Department 
of Community Medicine, University of Massachu- 
setts at Worcester, to become the Department of 
Community and Family Medicine, University of 
Massachusetts at Worcester. 

The Chairman then took up the Report on Status of Faculty 
Recruitment and Admissions Policies, UM/Worcester (Doc. T74-041) . 
Dr. Saunders spoke first to the questions on the faculty contained 
in the Document. He reported that currently there are 30 faculty 
and four senior professional non-faculty unfilled positions; that 
to recruit Department Chairmen, the Dean appoints search committees, 
usually inter-departmental, which include students; and that the 
responsibility for recruitment of faculty members other than 
Chairmen lies with the Department Chairman. 

Chairman Troy inquired about the responsibility for 
implementing affirmative action efforts at the University. Presi- 
dent Wood responded by saying that, under federal and state law, 
the Board of Trustees has the policy-making responsibility, and 
recalled that the Board has adopted a general affirmative action 
statement. The campuses are delegated the implementation responsi- 
bility, with the requirement that they report their plans and 
actions to the President. 

President Wood stated that the Amherst campus was the 
first at the University to have a major inquiry and investigation 
by the U. S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare on 
affirmative action policies and practices, and that the Boston and 
Worcester campuses have now been officially notified of HEW 
inquiries, with the sanctions respecting federal grants that can 
be invoked. He further stated that Dean Soutter and he had dis- 
cussed how they might make better progress toward affirmative 
action, and that he had called for the development at the Worcester 
campus, as well as Amherst and Boston, of affirmative action plans, 
which the Dean submitted and his Office responded to. 

The HEW inquiry, the President remarked, prompted him to 
write to the Dean requesting that the matter be given high priority 
"because if we are in conflict with federal or state law, we are in 
an intolerable position as a state university." He noted his 
understanding that this had led to a major discussion by the 
senior faculty which, in turn, led to the current report. 

Chairman Troy asked about responsibility for implementa- 
tion at Amherst and Boston. Chancellor Golino replied that an 
Affirmative Action Officer will soon be appointed who will report 



I 



I

COMMITTEE 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

directly to him; and Chancellor Bromery stated that the Vice Chan- 
cellors and Deans have the shared responsibility, with the two 
persons from his Office who consult with and advise them. Dr. Clark 
stated that at UM/Worcester, the Department chairmen have responsi- 
bility for the faculty, the Director of Personnel is responsible at 
the staff level, and that the Admissions Committee of the Faculty 
is responsible in that area. Vice President for University Policy, 
Peter Edelman, stated that he has that responsibility in the Office 
of the President. 

Vice President Edelman noted that the performance of 
UM/Amherst in response to the HEW review had been excellent in most 
respects, and that the shared responsibility method of implementa- 
tion is one that, in general, is successful only where there has 
already been demonstrated performance and commitment throughout an 
entire institution. He further stated that in the absence of such 
demonstrated performance, HEW, the Massachusetts Commission Against 
Discrimination, and others charged with monitoring and enforcement 
are disturbed to find that there is no specifically designated 
Affirmative Action/Equal Employment Opportunity Officer. The 
experience of institutions nation-wide, he noted, indicates that the 
presence of such an Officer, acting as a specialist and advocate 
and supported by the chief executive, is essential for meaningful 
compliance with the law. 

The ensuing discussion noted that at UM/Worcester there 
is one part-time unpaid black faculty member and four paid female 
faculty members, and three black and three Spanish-speaking nonpro- 
fessional staff in a total employee population of 147. 

Dean Saunders stated that the Dean of the Medical School 
has notified the faculty that it is the responsibility of each 
Department Head, in recruiting new faculty, to use every possible 
means to make known the availability of positions, including use 
of relevant publications, and to make known that minority appli- 
cants are strongly encouraged to apply. He noted that these 
efforts are only recently begun and there is no written formal 
policy statement. 

Chairman Troy asked, whether as a result of recent dis- 
cussions, the faculty was more aware of the extent of the problem, 
and Dean Saunders replied that he was certain they were acutely 
aware of it. Dr. Clark stated that he has himself contacted black 
colleagues when positions became available in his Department and 
that the medical profession was now making available rosters of 
minority faculty and graduate students, which will aid in recruit- 
ment . 

Vice President Edelman noted that it is a requirement of 
the various relevant federal and state regulations on recruitment 
of minorities that once the Affirmative Action Plan is developed,

there must be full demonstration to the person who has the ultimate 
hiring authority of the minority and female applicants who were con- 
sidered, and the reasons for rejection if they are not hired. 
Similarly, goals and targets are required by law. 

Chairman Troy then turned to the discussion of admissions 
procedures. Dean Saunders presented the following general state- 
ment of intent developed by the faculty for Committee considera- 
tion: "That the Trustees approve the admission of a group of 
applicants who, because of reasons of economic status or minority 
group status, have been educationally deprived and who, therefore, 
appear to be less well-qualified academically than some other 
applicants. It is presumed that most, but not necessarily all, of 
this group will be members of racial minority groups." He stated 
that the faculty had endorsed the philosophy behind the statement 
last spring, and had reaffirmed its stance and approved the present 
statement at a recent meeting. Requirements for graduation will be 
the same for all students admitted, he noted, consistent with legal 
requirements. 

Dean Saunders discussed tutorials already available, and 
the probable need for additional financial support for students. 
He also noted that UM/Worcester is constrained to admit only Massa- 
chusetts residents and U. S. citizens. 

At the conclusion of the discussion, President Wood moved 
that a Special Meeting of the Committee on Faculty and Educational 
Policy be called to convene prior to the regularly scheduled meeting 
of the Board of Trustees on December 5, 1973, at which time he 
would make a prepared statement and propose a Vote for consideration 
by the Committee and the Board. The Vote is to be circulated to the 
Committee prior to the Special Meeting. The President's motion was 
recorded and adopted. There being no further business to come 
before the Committee, the meeting adjourned at 1:15 p.m.

STATEMENT AND PROPOSED VOTE BY PRESIDENT WOOD 
RELATIVE TO PROCEDURES AND PRACTICES OF FACULTY 
RECRUITMENT AND STUDENT ADMISSIONS AT UM/WORCESTER 

Trustee Committee on Faculty and Educational Policy 

December 5, 1973 



The Faculty and Educational Policy Committee on November 20 
began a review of the procedures and practices used by the Medical 
School in the recruitment of its faculty and the admission of its 
students. Dean Saunders and Dr. Clark were there to brief commit- 
tee members. Given the absence of Dean Soutter and Trustees Abrams 
and Croce, additional reports reflecting the views of the senior 
faculty of the School and the Dean will be given at a later date. 

On the basis of the discussion at that meeting, however, and 
at the request of the Medical School, it is clear that the Trustees 
need to give explicit support to the development of admission pro- 
cedures and instructional programs which acknowledge that present 
nationally standardized examinations and grades do not adequately 
reflect the innate abilities of applicants deprived, by reason of 
minority status, poverty, or other circumstances, of adequate edu- 
cational preparation for professional careers. As a consequence, 
potential physicians of competence and dedication are not identi- 
fied and the quality of the educational enterprise is impaired. 

The Dean and the faculty of the Medical School believe that 
special efforts must be taken to redress this inequitable pattern. 
The Committee's discussion today indicates that it shares this be- 
lief and that it accepts the School's recommendation that more sen- 
sitive and varied measures of evaluation be established in admissions 
procedures. The Committee's discussion further indicated that it en- 
dorses a program of special academic and other support services for 
those students in need of it, and that it would encourage the Medical 
School to work with the Amherst and Boston campuses and the Worcester 
Consortium in developing such a program. 

In the context of these standards of performance and supplemen- 
tary activity, I would suggest that the Committee specifically en- 
dorse the School's target that 10 per cent of its entering class of 
1974 be minority students and that continuing and sustained efforts 
be made thereafter to ensure that groups underrepresented in the 
physician population of the Commonwealth — whether by reason of pre- 
vious discrimination or poverty — have a full opportunity to become 
physicians. 

Finally, I judge that the Committee believes that these actions 
taken together will enhance the professional quality and distinction 
of the Medical School. As with our other campuses, there is no con- 
flict in the goal of a public university to take every opportunity 
to expand access and its aim to be second to none in academic quality, 



I 



I 



I

Accordingly, I move that the Committee adopt the statement I 
have just made and that it recommend that the Board adopt it as 
well, and that the Board endorse and support the Medical School's 
proposed policy of special academic programs for qualified but 
underprepared students and its target of 10 per cent minority stu- 
dents for fall 1974. 



PROPOSED VOTE 

To adopt the statement of President Wood as a 
statement of the Committee, and to recommend to the 
Board of Trustees that it adopt the statement as well 
and that it endorse and support the Medical School's 
proposed policy of special academic programs for quali- 
fied but underprepared students and its target of ten 
per cent minority students for fall 1974.

INSTITUTE FOR LEARNING AND TEACHING 
University of Massachusetts/Boston 



Progress Report: November 1973 



I. Introduction: Goals and Structure 

Since the Institute's last report to the Board of Trustees in 1972, there have been 
substantial changes in its staff, programs, and source of funds, but its structure 
and goals have remained essentially the same. The changes are described in some 
detail below; it might be useful first, however, to restate the Institute's goals and 
briefly to describe its structure. 

The Institute was designed to serve two major purposes: to improve the education 
of urban children by working intensively with groups of teachers and administrators 
in city school systems; and to enrich the education of UM/B students principally by 
fostering undergraduate programs that involve field experiences in city schools and 
child-serving agencies . These two purposes are clearly related and when the Insti- 
ute is functioning at its best, it serves as a productive link between the University 
and many of the schools, elementary and secondary, which prepare UM/B students. 

In structure, the Institute has remained, as planned, relatively compact and mobile - 
- able at short notice to respond to a wide range of educational issues, and sufficiently 
unbureaucratic to keep red tape at a minimum. It has a staff of eleven educational 
generalists who are equally at home in school and university settings, and who are 
prepared to work in areas as diverse as curriculum development, bi-cultural education, 
teacher training, field supervision, group dynamics, or educational planning. To in- 
crease still further the range of resources the Institute can offer, staff members in 
charge of programs regularly hire 'adjunct faculty' — consultants or experts from 
UM/B, other universities, goverment agencies, school systems and the like -- to 
meet particular requests from participants in Institute programs. 

By the very nature of its programs, the Institute's effect on the schools, school systems, 
and agencies with which it works (as well as on the University itself) cannot in the short 
run be gauged with any certainty. The 'crash programs' and 'massive interventions' 
that schools of education or government-sponsored institutions have launched in the 
past have not been generally successful and have alienated many school teachers and 
administrators. The Institute's strategy sacrificies demonstrable short-term results 
for less obvious but, we believe, more long-lasting effects, not the least of which will 
be improved communications and greater cooperation between school and universities.

II. Staffing: Changes 



The Institute's first director, Gregory Anrig, left in February, 1973, to become 
Commissioner of Education for the Commonwealth. He was succeeded by James 
Case of the Institute staff. Two Institute positions change annually: Robert Carroll, 
the Special Representative of the Boston Public Schools, was replaced by Annette 
Stavros, and Professor Paul Bookbinder (History, Collegell), the Coordinator of 
University Programs, was replaced by Professor Francis R. Hart (English, College I), 
Three additional staff members, Frederick Gates, Marcia Feld, and Henrietta Ball, 
left and were replaced by Nancy Moore (from the School of Education, University of 
Massachusetts), David Quattrone (from the Harvard Graduate School of Education) 
and Helen Drew ( a student in College II). Joyce Grant (Northeastern University) 
became Coordinator of the Alternative Training Service, the position previously 
held by Dr. Case. 

III. Program Development 

A. University Programs - The Sociology and Urban Social Service (SUSS) 
Program, a joint effort of the two sociology departments and the Institute, 
is in its third year. Nancy St. John, Larry Kamara, and Stan Nikkei are 
teaching in the program; the seventy students enrolled all have supervised 
field placements in private or governmental agencies that work with children. 

A new program sponsored jointly by the Institute and the College of Public 
and Community Service in early childhood has just begun. Faculty members 
working in the program include Suzanne Gassner, Leonard Solomon, Karma. 
Kroin, Nancy Klinger, Susan Monjan, and Sarah Kelley. Students enrolled 
in the program have field placements in day care centers and similar agencies. 

A joint Institute -College I interdepartmental ethnic studies concentration - 
- Spanish- speaking People in Urban America --is planned to begin in the 
second semester. A detailed proposal for this program was prepared by 
Professor Schiavo-Campo tins summer and has been presented to the Academic 
Affairs Committee of College I. With the assistance of the Institute, the 
Spanish Department of College I is now offering a course in Methods and Mate- 
rial of Bilingual Education. The course is taught by Mrs. Carmen Necheles, 
a special advisor to the Superintendent of the Boston Public Schools and a new 
part-time faculty member in the Spanish Department. 

The Institute, together with interested representatives from other parts of 
the University, has begun to explore two other areas in which its capabilities 
might be of use to University of Massachusetts/Boston students. First, there 
have been several meetings to discuss and plan the evaluation of a few selected 



r 



i 



I 



-3- 



existing programs in the area of essential skills; to explore the feasibility 
of a faculty seminar or discussions group focussing on teaching essential 
skills; and to define what central resources or services are needed in this, 
area. Second, the Institute, the Director of Pre-Freshman Programs, and 
a representative of the Boston Public Schools have begun to draft a proposal 
for a Transitional Studies Program that would enable a selected group of able 
but educationally disadvantaged city high school students to prepare for 
college and successfully begin their studies. Both of these possible programs 
are in their earliest planning stages; their further development will depend 
entirely on support from both faculty and administration and on the availability 
of funds. 

B. School and Agency Programs - In response to a new state law (Chapter 766) 
which will take effect in September 1974, the Institute is this year organizing 
a new program in special education. The new law encourages, among other 
things, the increased integration of handicapped and exceptional children into 
regular school programs. The Institute will be working with classroom teache: 
administrators and parents to maximize the educational benefits available to 
these children under the law. 

The Institute's work in Boston's new open- space schools is focussed initially 
jthis year on one school, the John Marshall in Dorchester; but last year's 
work with members of the Department of Staff Development assigned to the 
open- space schools is continuing, as are the bi-weekly meetings with the 
principals of all open-space schools. If intensive work in the Marshall 
School proves successful, the Institute plans to focus in the future on a 
second school, then perhaps a third. There will be a continuing effort 
throughout the year to share successful innovations at the Marshall with all 
of the schools. 

The Institute's program in bilingual education has already assisted die Boston 
Department of Bilingual Education in running a two-day orientation workshop 
for new bilingual teachers. Regular weekly training sessions for bilingual 
and ESL teachers are in the process of being organized, and the Institute is 
this year offering special training services to various groups within the De- 
partment -- the community coordinators, the consulting teachers, and the 
guidance counsellors. 

In the field of secondary education , the Institute has begun discussions with 
the Staff Development Department of the Boston Public Schools aimed at re- 
defining and strengthening the role of the Department in fostering educational 
change throughout the system. Last year's meetings with secondary school 
principals (the IPSA group) will continue, and the Institute is, in addition, 
planning to deal more directly tins year with the educational aspects of racial 
integration in secondary schools. 



I 



-4- 



C. Short-Term Programs (Alternative Training Service) - The Institute is 
continuing its work with parochial schools though in a reduced way for this 
year only: University Counsel has informed us that while private foundation 
funds may be used in such programs, state monies may not. Work in this 
area this year will be largely in support of the Inter- community Consulting 
Team, a new attempt on the part of four teaching orders in the Archdiocese 
to supply supportive services to the thirty elementary schools for which 
they are responsible. 

Other short term programs, some in the planning stages, will probably be 
developed with a Massachusetts Title III Bilingual Curriculum Development 
Project, Boston's Community Schools, the Massachusetts Experimental 
School System (CCED), and various Columbia Point agencies and groups. 

In fact, in all school and agency programs, both long term and short term, 
the Institute is actively considering ways in which it can be of service to the 
areas of the city most affected by the University's move to its new campus 
at Columbia Point. At the request of the Columbia Point Youth Center, the 
Institute conducted two training programs for Center staff members last 
year. This year, the Institute has met with the principal and faculty of the 
McCormack School to explore possible joint programs there. 

IV. The Institute' s Budget 

This year (academic year 1973-74) is the last year in which the Institute can count on 
substantial support from the Ford Foundation. The Institute was awarded its third 
Ford grant in September, of which $245, 700 is for the current year, and $75, 000 for 
support of the Alternative Training Service in 1974-75. In line with a planned shift 
from foundation to University support, the University has committed approximately 
$188, 000 to the Institute for 1973-74, and will be asked to commit approximately 
$325,000 for 1974-75. 

Out of this total annual budget of approximately $400, 000, $230, 000 is allocated to 
staff (including secretarial) salaries, the remainder to programs. More than one 
fourth of the total budget is channeled back into the University. 

V. Evaluation 



For the last three years, the Institute has contracted with an independent evaluation 
firm (TDR Associates of Newton) for intensive evaluation of all its programs. Both 
specific program evaluations and the annual TDR reports are available and will be 
sent on request to interested trustees.

Ritchie Associates, Inc., Architects 



The meeting was called to order at 2:35 p.m. by Trustee 
Crowley, who had been designated by Chairman Knowles to chair the 
meeting in her absence. 

At the request of Trustee Crowley, President Wood 
reported on the progress being made on the three campuses of the 
University. President Wood prefaced his remarks by informing the 
Committee that for the second year in a row, there has been no 
capital outlay for the University, but that wording changes have 
been authorized that will allow for the equipment for the teaching 
hospital at UM/Worcester and for the arts and sciences building 
(080/2) at UM/Boston. He stated that if in the next session of the 
Legislature no capital outlay is forthcoming, the University will 
face serious problems. 

With reference to UM/Amherst, President Wood informed the 
Committee that the completion of the new power plant is delayed until 
spring of 1974 and actual operation could be delayed further as a 
result of the energy crisis. While use of the old power plant would 
mean an annual saving of 3,600,000 gallons of fuel oil, this benefit 
would be offset by an air pollution problem. The use of the new 
plant will also require an exemption from the sewage ban. Completion

of the Fine Arts Center is expected in the spring or summer of 1974, 
but because of a manufacturing backlog and negotiations with the 
Bureau of Building Construction regarding funding, special lighting 
and sound installation will not be completed until spring, 1975. 
It will be necessary to obtain an exemption from the sewage ban in 
order to occupy this building. The modular units are ready for 
bidding of foundations, but are also delayed because of the sewage 
ban. 

At UM/Boston parking facilities in future buildings which 
will house the gymnasium and College III are being discussed by 
Chancellor Golino and Secretary of Transportation Altshuler's 
Office. Considerations include design of parking facilities, 
effect on mass transportation, and whether the proposed parking 
spaces are excessive. President Wood said that the release of more 
than $850,000 in change order funds will facilitate the opening 
of the new campus. 

President Wood reported that he had prepared a letter 
for the Building Authority in the hope of implementing plans for 
the parking garage at UM/Worcester. He stated that he and Dean 
Soutter, along with others concerned, had met with the Department 
of Transportation to discuss the problem of excessive vibration in 
the boilers at the UM/Worcester power plant. He stated that as a 
result of this meeting, both the Department of Transportation and 
University personnel would suggest names of experts from whom the 
Bureau of Building Construction could select a consultant to 
evaluate this problem. The Board of Trustees will not be asked to 
take further action on this matter until the boilers can be 
guaranteed as safe. 

President Wood reported that the move into the new 
Medical School facility is in progress and that there will be an 
accreditation visit next month by the Liaison Committee on Medical 
Education of the American Medical Association. 

President Wood endorsed Dean Soutter' s request for a 
special meeting of the Board of Trustees in the near future, at 
which time a full briefing on the status of the Medical School 
would be given by senior members of the Medical School faculty and 
staff. 

At the conclusion of President Wood's remarks and in 
response to questions which had been raised regarding the teaching 
hospital, Trustee Crowley asked Dean Soutter to review for the 
Committee the development of the design and planning of the 
hospital. 

Dean Soutter informed the Committee that Ritchie 



Teaching Hospital Associates had been appointed as architects for the hospital and 



Development 



that Ellerbe Associates had been appointed as architectural con- 
sultants because of their extensive experience in the building of

medical schools and university hospitals. He said that Mr. James 
Hamilton, recognized as one of the foremost consultants in the 
field of hospital administration, had been hired by the University 
as a consultant on all plans and that, in addition, consultants had 
been called in on each of the specialized areas. Dean Soutter then 
asked Mr. Hamilton to review for the Committee the provisions for 
expansion of the hospital facilities to meet anticipated future 
needs and to indicate the amount of flexibility in use provided for 
in the planning of the hospital. 

Mr. Hamilton observed that, as a teaching hospital and a 
medical school, an institution should be in advance of current 
practice and capable of flexibility. In the specific case of UM/ 
Worcester, the facility will serve as a referral hospital, handling 
difficult cases, and emphasizing outpatient rather than inpatient 
services. At the same time, the hospital has been planned so that, 
should the need arise, its capabilities can be quickly expanded. 
Mr. Hamilton explained that the construction of the hospital is such 
that it can be expanded both horizontally and vertically without 
necessitating major rebuilding. This has been accomplished by the 
type of interior wall construction as well as by the location of 
electrical and other conduits on outside walls. 

Mr. Stockwell reviewed plans for handling traffic coming 
into the hospital, indicating where parking facilities would be 
located for patients, visitors, faculty and students, as well as 
traffic provisions for the various hospital services. In each case, 
the parking facilities are located close to the area to be visited. 

Dr. Wheeler next explained the design of the various 
facilities in the hospital and how traffic would be controlled to 
these areas. He indicated that services were located so as to 
provide the most efficient use of time, equipment, and space. He 
explained how the spread of infection would be controlled and how 
the flow of personnel would be monitored. 

Mr. Ramseth of Ellerbe Associates next reviewed vertical 
transportation facilities. He stated that separate service would 
be provided for visitors and hospital functions and that where 
practicable, dumbwaiters and pneumatic tubes would be used to handle 
materials so as to provide the most economical and efficient use of 
the larger vertical transportation services. Provisions have been 
made for the future installation of additional elevators and for 
extension of the rise of the present elevators. 

Trustee Crowley asked if the criticism that the hospital 
was not sufficiently provided with vertical transportation at the 
present time was justified, and Mr. Moyes of Ritchie Associates 
replied that this was not the case. President Wood asked for a set 
of up-to-date plans, which Mr. Stockwell said he would provide.

In response to a question by Vice President Edelman 
concerning family practice facilities, Mr. Stockwell replied that 
family practice will be handled by City Hospital and that only 
patients with specialized problems will be treated at the teaching 
hospital. Mr. Edelman expressed concern that family practice 
patients would be treated in areas shared with other services and 
that no permanent space was provided for this service. 

The hospital will have a capacity of 75,000 outpatients 
per year. Twenty percent of the 400 beds will be in intensive 
care units. 

Turning to the problem of the design of the large 
interior courtyard, Mr. Wang of Campbell, Aldrich and Nulty showed 
the Committee a rendering of the modified design, entitled TOMS 
Courtyard (Doc. T74-046) , which includes provisions for plantings 
and other relief from the concrete. After brief discussion, it 
was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board of Trustees accept 
the recommendation of Dean Soutter of a revised 
design for the large interior courtyard between 
the Basic and Clinical Science Building and the 
Teaching Hospital as prepared by Campbell, 
Aldrich and Nulty and presented to the Committee 
on Buildings and Grounds on November 26, 1973. 

After further brief discussion of the interior design 
for the hospital, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board of Trustees request 
that the Bureau of Building Construction award 
the contract for loose furnishings and graphics 
in the Teaching Hospital to a firm with the 
highest possible qualifications in the field of 
interior design, and to include in that contract 
furnishings for the Meditation Room. 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that the 

Treasurer of the University, Kenneth W. Johnson, 
be authorized to sign lease agreements with the 
American National Red Cross and the City of 
Worcester for the use of its Department of Public 
Health for the rental of the Medical School 
building in Worcester known as the Shaw Building 
after concluding negotiations on heating costs, 
upon terms and rental rates as presented to this

At the Chairman's request, Chancellor Golino presented 
the proposed Master of Arts Program in History, UM/Boston (Doc.

reviewed on campus prior to his arrival in July, and that since 
that time he had conducted his own review, as a result of which he 
was able to report his enthusiastic endorsement. The Chancellor 
noted the limitations in scope and size of the proposed program, 
and stated his opinion that the program was "a realistic one." 

Trustee Boyden stated his understanding that there was a 
general two-year moratorium on new graduate programs, but that the 
development of the Master of Arts in History had been begun

mittee on Faculty and Educational Policy, November 20, 1973) . The 
Chairman recalled for the Committee its discussion of November 20, 
which focused on recruitment and admission of minority groups; and 
the Committee's request that President Wood prepare a summary state- 
ment of the University's stance and a proposed Vote to be considered 
and acted upon by the Committee, which had been distributed to 
Committee members as the Appendix to the Minutes of that meeting. 

Dean Soutter reported that the Executive Committee of 
the Faculty had discussed the issue of minority admissions prior to 
making the recommendations submitted to the President, and had felt 
that no specific proposed percentage of minority students should be 
made part of the Trustees' statement of policy, so that the Medical 
School "would not be limited by a percentage." The Dean stated that 
he was, therefore, requesting that reference to a "target of ten 
percent minority students for fall 1974" be deleted from the pro- 
posed Vote prior to action by the Committee. 

Trustee Croce commented that he was "entirely in favor 
of the philosophy behind affirmative action for the Medical School." 
He expressed his doubt, however, concerning the efficacy by them- 
selves of enrichment programs for educationally deprived students 
already enrolled in graduate and professional schools. Trustee 
Croce suggested as an overall long-term approach the establishment 
of a program directed from the President's Office and staffed 
principally by faculty from the Medical School but including also 
faculty and staff from UM/Amherst and UM/Boston, which would have 
as its stated purpose the guidance and evaluation of interested 
minority group freshmen in undergraduate colleges who are beginning 
preparation for medical education. He stated that he saw such a 
program operating supplementary to the efforts that would be begun 
as a result of Trustee action on the proposed Vote. 

Trustee Abrams stated that he and Trustee Croce were in 
agreement, as physicians, on the need for early identification and 
encouragement of minority applicants to the Medical School and 
noted that in June, 1972, the Trustees had voted to direct the 
Medical School to initiate such a program. He stated that the 
results of any such effort would not be seen for a period of time, 
however, and that as a result of the federal HEW inquiry the 
immediate task is to take strong steps toward increasing the level 
of minority applicants and admissions.

Two articles from the New England Journal of Medicine 
discussing medical education for minority groups were distributed 
by Trustee Abrams, who noted that in the experience of other 
medical schools, some of the traditional methods of predicting 
success in medical school are not, in fact, as valid as they were 
once thought to be. He also stated that part of the mandate of a 
state university is to pioneer in making education more generally 
available. 

Dr. Bloomberg, substituting for Trustee Goldman, discussed 
certain negative results of firm quota systems, and asked that the 
target of ten percent minority students stated in the proposed 
Vote be amended to read "no less than ten percent minority 
students." 

Trustee Snowden recalled her early concern regarding the 
need to increase representation from minority groups at the Univer- 
sity. She expressed her feeling that any discussion of lowering 
standards for admission carried with it an unnecessary negative 
connotation, and suggested that a more productive line of inquiry 
and discussion would be to talk in terms of "changing standards to 
be more inclusive." Trustee Snowden agreed that in the long run a 
program of early intervention for potential medical school appli- 
cants was necessary, but that to take only the long-range view 
would mean that students now preparing to apply would be seen as 
expendable. She also stated that the decision by a qualified 
minority candidate not to apply at UM/Worcester would be largely 
determined by the relative absence of black and other minority 
faculty and students already there. 

Trustee Shaler endorsed Dr. Bloomberg's proposed amend- 
ment of the President's statement and proposed Vote to reflect a 
minimum of ten percent minority students, and Trustee Boyden also 
expressed his concern about setting a definite target. Trustee 
Robertson stated that a specified target was a legal requirement in 
establishing affirmative action guidelines, but that they should be 
set based on realistic expectations of what can be achieved. He 
also stated that a target, once established, need not necessarily 
be fully reached; but that if it is not, it must be demonstrated 
why it was not, and that through an effective outreach program, an 
effort is being made in good faith to reach the target. Therefore, 
he said, a specific target should not be a reason for particular 
concern provided that it is realistically determined. 

Dr. Bloomberg stated that unnecessary confusion can 
result from confounding a quota with a target; that the language 
of the proposed Vote specified a target, which he understood to be 
an aim or goal; and that he favored the proposed action for that 
reason.

In reacting to the discussion, Trustee Cagle stated that 
he was particularly concerned with the need for the Medical School 
to recruit more actively from among the available qualified minority 
students, and noted that enrichment programs usually benefit other 
students in addition to those for whom they are specifically 
designed. 

Citing the proposed ten percent target for the next 
entering class, Trustee Boyden inquired whether the Medical School 
would experience difficulty in reaching the goal by that date. 
Dean Soutter responded that it was the feeling of the faculty that 
it would be difficult, and that "a realistic quota for us would be 
four percent." He added that the Medical School might, at best, 
reach the national average of six to seven percent, and questioned 
whether the Trustees wished to set a goal that could not be 
achieved. As a part of his discussion, the Dean suggested the 
possibility of increasing the 1974 entering class by the targeted 
number of minority students. This comment resulted in negative as 
well as favorable reactions by Committee members, and Chairman Troy 
indicated that such a possibility was a separate matter which might 
be considered at another meeting, but which would not affect the 
targeted percentage figure itself. Trustee Robertson stated that in 
light of the present situation where there are no minority students 
he would prefer to see the target set at a reasonably high level 
so as to maximize recruiting efforts. 

Trustee Croce inquired whether the University would be 
open to legal action if it set a target that was not reached, or 
if the goal were exceeded. Vice President Edelman cited Trustee 
Robertson's earlier remarks bearing on that question, and stated 
that the law uses the terms "goals" and "targets" rather than 
"quotas" because they represent levels to strive toward, and that 
a "good faith demonstration" why the target was not met will be 
accepted if indeed the goal is not met. Similarly, he stated, 
since a target is a desired minimum, but not a maximum, rather than 
a quota, the issue of "reverse discrimination" would arise only 
if an applicant who was not at all qualified were to be accepted. 

Returning to some of the philosophical assumptions under- 
lying the broad issue at hand, Trustee Snowden questioned "whether 
from an educational point of view, a student body that is not 
inclusive is one that is deprived." There is, she stated, "the 
educational experience of sharing, the experience of learning with 
all kinds of people" that is particularly important. 

Chairman Troy noted that while the President's statement 
and proposed Vote addressed admissions, affirmative action to 
recruit minority faculty "certainly is implied," and that further 
committee discussion would be devoted to that issue as necessary.

Upon motion made and seconded the following statement of 
President Wood was adopted as a statement of the Committee on 
Faculty and Educational Policy: 

"The Faculty and Educational Policy Committee on 
November 20 began a review of the procedures and practices 
used by the Medical School in the recruitment of its faculty 
and the admission of its students. Dean Saunders and Dr. 
Clark were there to brief committee members. Given the 
absence of Dean Soutter and Trustees Abrams and Croce, 
additional reports reflecting the views of the senior faculty 
of the School and the Dean will be given at a later date. 

"On the basis of the discussion at that meeting, however, 
and at the request of the Medical School, it is clear that 
the Trustees need to give explicit support to the development 
of admission procedures and instructional programs which 
acknowledge that present nationally standardized examinations 
and grades do not adequately reflect the innate abilities of 
applicants deprived, by reason of minority status, poverty, 
or other circumstances, of adequate educational preparation 
for professional careers. As a consequence, potential 
physicians of competence and dedication are not identified 
and the quality of the educational enterprise is impaired. 

"The Dean and the faculty of the Medical School believe 
that special efforts must be taken to redress this inequitable 
pattern. The Committee's discussion on November 20 indicated 
that it shares this belief and that it accepts the School's 
recommendation that more sensitive and varied measures of 
evaluation be established in admissions procedures. The Com- 
mittee's discussion further indicated that it endorses a 
program of special academic, financial and advisory support 
services for those students in need of it, and that it would 
encourage the Medical School to work with the Amherst and 
Boston campuses and the Worcester Consortium in developing 
such a program. 

"In the context of these standards of performance and 
supplementary activity, I would suggest that the Committee 
specifically endorse the School's target that a minimum of 
10 percent of its entering class of 1974 be minority students 
and that continuing and sustained efforts be made thereafter 
to ensure that groups underrepresented in the physician 
population of the Commonwealth — whether by reason of previous 
discrimination or poverty — have a full opportunity to become 
physicians . 

"Finally, I judge that the Committee believes that these 
actions taken together will enhance the professional quality

and distinction of the Medical School. As with our other 
campuses, there is no conflict in the goal of a public 
university to take every opportunity to expand access and 
its aim to be second to none in academic quality." 



and it was 



VOTED : 



To adopt the statement of President Wood as a 
statement of the Committee, and to recommend 
to the Board of Trustees that it adopt the 
statement as well and that it endorse and sup- 
port the Medical School's proposed policy of 
special academic programs for qualified but 
underprepared students and its target of a 
minimum of ten percent minority students for 
fall 1974. 



There being no further business to come before the 
Committee, the meeting adjourned at 12:05 p.m.

The Special Meeting was called to order by Chairman 
Gordon at 11:45 a.m. 

Vice Chancellor Gage presented the proposed Amendment of 
Trustee Vote on Graduate Student Tax, UM/Amherst (Doc. T74-042) . 
He noted that a $1.00 per semester increase in the Tax had been 
approved by the Graduate Student Senate last spring, but that his 
office had not been notified in time for the increase to be 
reflected in billing for the current semester. Therefore, approval 
of a $4.00 rate for the spring 1974 semester and $3.00 thereafter 
was being requested. Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board of Trustees, acting at 
the request of the Graduate Student Senate, amend 
its Vote of December 21, 1970, relative to the 
establishment of a Graduate Student Tax, as follows: 

a. The Graduate Student Tax, University of 
Massachusetts at Amherst, previously 
authorized at $2.00 per student per 
semester, shall be set at $3.00 per stu- 
dent per semester, effective September 1, 
1973. Said tax shall be levied only 

on full-time graduate students. 

b. To effect the retroactive provision of the 
amended Tax, the Graduate Student Tax, 
University of Massachusetts at Amherst, 
shall be set at $4.00 per student for the 
second semester of the 1973-74 academic 
year only, and thereafter the $3.00 rate 
shall be in effect. Said tax shall be 
levied only on full-time graduate students.

Chairman Gordon next turned to the proposed Amendment of 
Trustee Vote on Dormitory Telephone Service Fee, UM/ Amherst (Doc. 
T74-043) , which was discussed by Vice Chancellor Campion. He 
stated that the anticipated 32 percent increase by N. E. Telephone 
on which the May 2, 1973, Trustee budget action had been based had 
been reduced to 15 percent by the Department of Public Utilities. 
Since the cash flow situation of the Residence Hall Telephone Trust 
Fund did not require imposition of the previously voted $1.00 
increase to meet the smaller 15 percent rate increase, the proposal 
was to reduce the Fee from $20.00 to $19.00. It was accordingly 
moved, seconded and 



VOTED : 



To recommend that the Board of Trustees amend its 
Vote of May 2, 1973, relative to the establishment 
of a Dormitory Telephone Service Fee, as follows: 

Effective January 1, 1974, the Dormitory 
Telephone Service Fee, previously authorized 
at $20.00 per student per semester, is hereby 
set at $19.00 per student per semester, or 
$1.20 per week for periods less than one 
semester, for room telephone service in dormi- 
tories now serviced by the Amherst dormitory 
centrex telephone system.

The Chairman then asked Vice Chancellor Gage to present 
the proposed Amendment of Trustee Vote on Stockbridge Student Tax , 
UM/ Amherst (Doc. T74-047) . Dr. Gage reported that the proposed 



$6.00 increase in the Tax had been requested by the Stockbridge 
Student Senate to subsidize the Stockbridge School Directory and to 
pay for additional Senate clerical assistance. Upon motion made 
and seconded, it was

By consent of its members, the Committee then went into 
executive session for consideration of several matters. At 
10:30 a.m., the Committee came out of executive session and was 
joined by the administrators and staff noted above. 

At Chairman Healey' s request, President Wood invited the 
campus chief executives to report. For UM/ Amherst, Chancellor 
Bromery reported that, after long study of the matter, he has 
undertaken to review with Vice Chancellor Campion possibilities for 
redefinition of his present -position or reassignment to other 
responsibilities . 

Reporting for UM/Boston, Chancellor Golino summarized for 
the Committee factors leading to the resignation of Mrs. Dorothy 
Marshall from the position of Vice Chancellor and Provost, with 
request to return to teaching. Chancellor Golino indicated that 
change in Mrs. Marshall's assignment would be effective January 3, 
1974, and that, after due consideration and consultation, he had 
chosen Dr. Robert Spaethling to serve as Acting Vice Chancellor for 
Academic Affairs and Provost. President Wood then reviewed with 
the Committee the procedure followed in consideration of Mr.

Affairs at UM/Boston, spoke of the excellent impression Mr. Tubbs 
had made on those who had met and talked with him, and indicated 
that concurrence with this appointment, in his judgment, was well- 
advised. At the same time, President Wood commented on the need 
for clarification of the procedural definition of the term "con- 
currence," and said that he expected further appointments-processing 
at the level requiring concurrence to be handled in the future 
under clearer guidelines than had previously obtained. Trustee 
Troy queried Chancellor Golino concerning the allocation of 
admissions responsibility to the Office of Student Affairs, and 
emphasized that admissions is of basic concern to academic faculty 
and to the Trustee Committee on Faculty and Educational Policy. 
In the discussion that followed, it was agreed that this matter 
would be discussed at the February meeting of the Trustee Committee 
on Faculty and Educational Policy, with Vice President Lynton 
present . 

Dean Soutter then reported on the status of UM/Worcester 
and, in particular, on his view of plans for the informal session 
of the Board of Trustees to be held at the Medical School on 
January 8, 1974. Dean Soutter began by briefly reporting recent 
boiler trouble on the campus, and by indicating that the recent 
three-day accreditation team visit to the Medical School had 
resulted in full accreditation of the School. Dean Soutter then 
summarized his views about proper procedure for the informal 
January 8 Board session, saying that he expected that there would 
be a series of informal presentations by faculty and administrators 
with regard to the objectives and program of the Medical School, 
the organization and financial operation of the Teaching Hospital, 
the way in which medical care will be provided, the relationships 
between the Medical School-Teaching Hospital and other hospitals in 
the Worcester area, the nature of a medical practice plan including 
compensation possibilities, and other matters. Dean Soutter said 
that he expected that discussions would go along with presenta- 
tions, that the presentations would not involve the reading of 
formal papers, and that he would plan to have the whole meeting 
tape recorded, with the results transcribed and later printed. 
President Wood indicated that he would have further consultations 
with Dean Soutter with regard to the nature of the January 8 pro- 
gram, and that its final organization would be communicated to the 
full Board thereafter. Trustee Knowles asked why a crematorium 
was planned for the Worcester installation; Dean Soutter in reply 
reviewed the reasons for constructing this facility and for 
seeking legislation to permit its operation. 

President Wood then reviewed briefly progress made by the 
Mayor's Columbia Point Peninsula Study Group. He said that the 
Study Group would publish a statement about its views concerning 
Peninsula development on January 7, 1974. President Wood commented 



I

that, while it appears to him the report of the Study Group will Mayor's Study 

present important possibilities for the Peninsula, the basic issue Group on the 

that remains unresolved is how to get development started and moved Columbia Point 

forward. He spoke also of two subissues. He said that the first Peninsula 

of these concerned what the Boston campus can best do in the short 

run in cooperation with the surrounding community, and that the 

second subissue has to do with long-run contributions the University 

may be able to make to the whole process of development; in this 

connection, President Wood said that the Office of the President 

would carry principal responsibility. 



Counsel Searson, at President Wood's request, then raised 
questions about needed changes in rules and regulations of the 
University with regard to in-state and out-of-state tuition levels 
as these may be affected by recent legislation and court decisions. 
In particular, Counsel Searson referred to State legislation 
reducing the age of majority from 21 years to 18, judicial decisions 
concerning conditions for the establishment of residence, and related 
actions. All of these, he said, would have immediate effect on the 
University and require alteration of current rules and regulations. 
Chairman Healey agreed that it would be necessary for the Board of 
Trustees to take action on these matters at an early date, but said 
that recent legislation and court decisions raised a complex series 
of questions which should not be answered hastily. Instead, Chairmar 
Healey and the Committee agreed that Counsel Searson should be asked 
to complete a thorough study of needed changes and prepare a 
specification of them to be presented as a proposal to the Executive 
Committee at a special meeting of that body to be held at UM/ 
Worcester on January 8, 1974, at a time which would not be in con- 
flict with the informal session of the whole Board scheduled for 
that date and location. 

President Wood reviewed briefly with the Committee his 
meeting the day before with presidents of the State and Community 
colleges and representatives of the Board of Higher Education. 

After further brief discussion, there being no further 
business to come before the Executive Committee, the meeting was 
adjourned at 11:30 a.m.

The meeting was called to order at 12:30 p.m. by Chairman 
Shaler, who summarized several key points of the Carnegie Commission 
report, The Purposes and Performances of Higher Education in the 
United States , sent to all Trustees by Secretary Patterson. 

Dean Soutter and Dr. Saunders reported that 1,020 appli- 
cations, of which 30 are from racial minority backgrounds, have 
been received by UM/Worcester for 64 places in the next class. Of 
the 30 applicants from racial minority backgrounds, 15 have been 
interviewed; the total number of all applicants interviewed at this 
point is 90. The Medical School has sent out 50 acceptances, 
including three for racial minority applicants. Dr. Saunders said 
that three minority students who withdrew their applications in 
previous years had excellent academic backgrounds, but chose to 
select long-established medical schools like Johns Hopkins instead 
of UM/Worcester. 

Dean Soutter explained that although the admission inter- 
view is a required part of the application process, no student is 
admitted without a strong academic record. If an applicant is 
qualified but needs additional academic preparation, courses can 
be taken at Harvard or at UM/Amherst during the summer. Plans are 
being made at UM/Worcester to increase the professional admissions 
staff to recruit more minority students next fall. In recruiting 
these students, more emphasis will be placed on working with 
student counselors so more minority students will be encouraged

to enter the medical profession. Twenty-five percent of the 
current UM/Worcester enrollment are women compared to a medical 
school national average of approximately 18 percent. 

Dr. Gage reported that the Student Undergraduate and 
Graduate Senate and the Faculty Senate at UM/Amherst have approved 
the proposed Alcoholic Beverage Policy. The Professional Associa- 
tion at that campus raised editorial questions about the policy 
draft which are now being worked out. Dr. Gage hopes to present 
the final draft of the policy statement to the Committee on Student 
Affairs in February so it can be put before the Board of Trustees 
in March. 

Chancellor Golino circulated a status report on admissions 
and pre-college programs at UM/Boston. He expressed concern over 
the lack of a formal admissions policy at UM/Boston, saying that 
admissions is one of the most serious issues on the campus. A Sub- 
committee on Admissions is dealing with this question of overall 
campus policy. Chancellor Golino expressed his hope that a final 
report on admissions policy prepared by the Subcommittee will lead 
to a definite and basic policy for the campus to follow next year. 

Four pre-college programs of UM/Boston were discussed and 
Chancellor Golino spoke of the need for more financial support in 
this area. The Boston campus, in his view, needs to provide more 
money for these programs if they are going to be effective. The 
Pre-Freshman Committee will submit its recommendations to the 
UM/Boston New Directions Committee this spring so that all areas 
of the pre-college question may be combined into one package. 

Dr. Gage reported on the status of the tuition waiver 
program for dormitory counselors at UM/Amherst describing it as a 
successful program. The two-year trial program earlier approved 
by the Board of Trustees (Doc. T72-175) has provided the base for 
only an incomplete evaluation of counselor effectiveness. A pre- 
liminary evaluation report has been prepared by counselors in the 
Southwest Residential Area, and an additional report will be avail- 
able from the Central Residential Area next month. Dr. Gage 
advocated a one-year extension of the tuition waiver program to 
permit a full review of counseling programs and their effectiveness. 
A request for a one-year extension will be made in the near future. 

Dr. Gage reported that Associate Dean of Admissions Doolan 
has completed the first draft of his individual study project on 
admissions directions at UM/Amherst. Mr. Doolan has been on leave 
for one semester to undertake the study of current trends in this 
area. The campus Admissions Office is evaluating its recruitment 
policy and Vice Chancellors Gage and Gluckstern and their staffs

UM/Amherst (Doc. T74-057) , and briefly reviewed the professional 
career and credentials of Professor Page. Chairman Troy and Presi-

Professor Page. It was accordingly moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that Pro- 
fessor Charles H. Page, University of Massachu- 
setts at Amherst, be designated as the Robert M. 
Maclver Professor of Sociology. 

The proposed Tenure Recommendation for Professor Virginia 
A. Beal, UM/Amherst (Doc. T74-055) , was introduced by Vice Chan- 
cellor Gluckstern. In reviewing Professor Beal's academic achieve- 
ments, Dr. Gluckstern noted that she had joined the faculty in 
February, 1970, and that the February starting date accounts for the 
irregular timing of the tenure recommendation coming to the Board

of Trustees. In endorsing this recommendation as consistent with 
the long-range plan to strengthen the field of nutrition at UM/ 
Amherst, Vice President Lynton noted that the relatively high pro- 
portion of tenured faculty in the Department of Food Science and 
Nutrition (16 of 20 faculty members) would require special 
attention in future tenure recommendations, new appointments, and 
reappointments. It was then moved, seconded and

Gluckstern remarked that the recommendation had been unanimously 
endorsed by the Department of History. Vice President Lynton 
noted that Professor Shipley is generally regarded as an outstand- 
ing teacher, and that someone in his academic specialty is 
essential for the Department of History. After further brief dis- 
cussion it was moved, seconded and

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that they

Neal R. Shipley, University of Massachusetts at 
Amherst, effective February 1, 1975. 

The Report on Academic Programs in Residence Areas, UM / 
Amherst (Doc. T74-051) , was discussed by Associate Provost 
Woodbury. In presenting the rationale for the programs, he cited 
some of the undesirable living characteristics of high-density 
dormitory areas generally, and the Southwest complex on the Amherst 
campus especially — where approximately half of the residential 
students are housed. The residence programs are, he said, one 
attempt to make the educational resources of the campus a more 
closely integrated part of everyday living patterns. This is done 
by offering in the residence areas some section meetings of regular 
academic courses, and other credit and non-credit courses and 
colloquia, some of which are initiated and taught by undergraduate 
or graduate students. Dr. Woodbury described the review of pro- 
posed courses and the course monitoring and evaluation that takes 
place, and emphasized the on-going review of the entire range of 
courses and programs by the UM/Amherst Faculty Senate. 

The ensuing discussion, during which Vice Chancellor 
Gluckstern, Dr. Woodbury, and Professor John Hunt, Master of South- 
west Residential College, responded to questions, noted that up to 
20 percent of the faculty are from time-to-time involved in 
residential programs, the courses represent 2.8 percent of the 
total course offerings on the campus, and that students are limited 
to a maximum of two such courses for credit per semester and a 



COMMITTEE 



I 



I 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



total of 12 credits toward the minimum graduation requirement of 
120 credits. 

The question of the academic integrity of certain courses 
was raised by Chairman Troy and other Trustees. Dr. Woodbury 
responded that one of the inevitable consequences of courses designee 
and taught outside of the departmental context is that the results 
do not always conform to traditional expectations, but that on 
balance this is manageable given the faculty review and evaluation 
that takes place. Professor Hunt added that the process of 
"quality control" is continually being refined by the faculty. 

President Wood spoke of his own participation in a 
Project 10 course last year, citing the informality and improved 
teacher-student communication because of small class size as assets. 
He noted, however, that some problems are created because of the 
range in age and preparation that is typically represented by the 
students, and the resulting difficulty in determining the level 
of sophistication at which the course material should be presented. 

Referring to some of the courses that address themselves 
to specific contemporary social issues, Chairman Troy stated his 
concern that the critical distinction between the advocacy of a 
point of view and the disinterested pursuit of knowledge may be lost 
Professor Hunt expressed the thought that the frank advocacy of a 
point of view gives students the opportunity to make their own 
critical assessments, and that this is an important positive educa- 
tional consequence. 

Chairman Troy, in concluding the discussion, reemphasized 
the sense of the Committee and the campus that regular and vigorous 
evaluation of the residential courses is essential. 

The Report on the Provincetown Theatre Project, UM/Amherst , 
was presented by Professor David Knauf, in response to the request 
of the Committee on Faculty and Educational Policy when it approved 
the summer lease of the Playhouse-on-the-Wharf in Provincetown last 
year. 

Professor Knauf stated that the program had been initiated 
primarily in order to meet some shifts in theatre education that 
could not be successfully accommodated on the campus. The exposure 
of advanced students to an audience different from that found on the 
campus and in the Connecticut Valley area, greater visibility of the 
theatre arts capability of the institution and community service 
were cited as being among the benefits of the program. Based on 
the experience of last summer, he stated, a proposal for the current 
season is being developed and will be brought to the Committee 
later in the year.

MEETING OF TRUSTEE COMMITTEE ON BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS 

January 16, 1974; 10:00 a.m. 

Office of the President, University of Massachusetts 
One Washington Mall, Boston, Massachusetts 



PRESENT: Trustees and Trustee Staff : Chairman Knowles, President 
Wood; Trustees Chandler, Crowley, Pumphret, Sullivan; 
Treasurer Johnson, Secretary Patterson, Miss Eichel 

Administrators, Faculty, Staff, and Invited Guests : 

Office of the President : Vice President Robinson, 
Mr. Kaplan, Mr. Kadzis, Mr. Stephenson

UM/Worcester : Dean Soutter, Mr. Roth 



The meeting was called to order at 10:15 a.m. by Chairman 
Knowles, who introduced the subject of graduate student housing 
policy and asked President Wood to comment. President Wood remarked 
that the Graduate Student Housing report circulated to the Committee 
was the result of a request from the Committee on Buildings and 
Grounds on July 16, 1973, for recommendations for a University-wide 
housing policy for graduate students. The Committee had made this 
request after discussion of a proposal from Dean Soutter for 
temporary student housing for students at UM/Worcester . President 
Wood said the report provides a comprehensive examination and 
analysis, and expressed his appreciation to Vice President Robinson 
and to Mr. Robert Stephenson, a consultant on its preparation. The 
President told the Committee that he and Dean Soutter had discussed 
the policy conclusions and action steps suggested by the report 
and that they agree concerning the Lane property, and the lack of 
need to initiate new capital outlay for student housing at present. 
Three possibilities which President Wood pointed to for exploration 
were: (1) the refurbishing of currently owned buildings, (2) oppor- 
tunities in the private market for student housing, and (3) use of 
other facilities. President Wood added that the highlights of the 
report are the comparison with housing at Amherst and recognition 
of the private sector as a means of meeting student housing require- 
ments. He said that, with the Committee's concurrence, and with 
the assistance of Dean Soutter, he would move to implement the 
recommendations of the report. Vice President Robinson commented 
that, after further campus consultation, she will develop formal 
policy guidelines which can be brought to the Board of Trustees and 
to the Chancellors.

Chairman Knowles observed that this report is one of the 
finest that has come to the Committee. 

Vice President Robinson commented that the report recom- 
mends that the University take a positive and constructive role in 
addressing the housing problems of graduate students, but that it 
explore all possible alternatives before resorting to the construc- 
tion of University housing. She then introduced Mr. Peter Kadzis, 
a UM/Boston student intern in the Planning Office, who had assisted 
with research on the report, and Mr. Robert Stephenson, consultant 
for the project. 

Mr. Pumphret questioned the proposed use of Maple Cottage 
for temporary student housing, as plans for the parking garage may 
require its demolition. Both Dean Soutter and President Wood 
agreed that Mr. Pumphret ' s point was well taken. Mr. Pumphret 
further stated that he believes the University should not become 
involved in building housing, with its long-range implications and 
the responsibility for keeping the units filled. He also opposed 
exploration of the possibility of a private contractor building 
on University property. 

In reply to a question, Mr. Roth stated that the A. J. 
Lane Construction Company's housing proposal had been modified to 
include recreational facilities. Treasurer Johnson informed the 
Committee that the University has an obligation to give the State 
Mental Health Department a year's notice of their desire to take 
over the use of the Farmhouse, which is currently occupied by 
Mental Health staff members. Both President Wood and Trustee 
Pumphret expressed the view that the University should take steps 
in this direction. 

Chairman Knowles invited Mr. Jack Littlefield, Planning 
Director at UM/Amherst, to comment on his reactions to the report 
and he replied that he saw no problems with it. He distributed 
a memorandum from Chancellor Bromery, in which Dr. Bromery stated 
that he found the policy recommendations of the report basically 
sound. 

Chairman Knowles asked Mr. Littlefield to report briefly 
on the progress of construction on the Amherst campus. He reported 
that problems with heating, ventilation and air-conditioning con- 
tinue to exist in Tobin Hall; that the Bureau of Building Construc- 
tion is helping resolve funding for the Graduate Research Center; 
and that the new power plant is about to be tested, although the 
University must obtain a sewage exemption for its use. The Bureau 
of Building Construction, Mr. Littlefield said, has signed a con- 
tract for lighting and sound for the Fine Arts Building. Discus- 
sions are being held with the architects regarding the furnishing 
of the public areas in the hall. 

Trustee Sullivan told the Committee that a court case is 



I 



I 



I 



COMMITTEE 



I 



I 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

coming up next week testing the ban on placing new construction on 
the sewerage system of the Town of Amherst. He added that Amherst 
has until 1977 to correct its sewage disposal problem and he 
believes this deadline can be met. 

Chancellor Golino reported that Phase I construction at 
UM/Boston is essentially completed and that the move to the new 
campus is going ahead without major problems. He mentioned that 
faculty and students can now begin to see the advantages that the 
move to the new campus will bring. Chancellor Golino reported 
further that the MBTA is cooperating by extending bus service on 
three lines directly to the campus. This service will be run from 
Park Square, from Dudley Station, and from Forest Hills. Chancellor 
Golino said that complaints about the cost of parking in the garage 
have been few. 

Dean Soutter reported that at UM/Worcester the power plant 
problems remain unresolved, the move into the Medical Science build- 
ing will be completed next week, and the hospital is now further 
ahead of schedule. Replying to a question raised by Trustee 
Chandler, Dean Soutter said that should the primary power system at 
the Medical School fail, there is adequate substation backup, plus 
reserve generator support. He added that the problem of excessive 
vibration in the new boilers cannot be resolved until spring 
because the City does not want the University to use the gas 
necessary to test the boilers at full strength until the weather 
is warmer . 

Chairman Knowles next turned to the matter of the naming 
of buildings on the three campuses, reminding the Committee that at 
the mini-retreat in Lexington on October 30, 1973, it had been 
suggested that a subcommittee be appointed to deal with this matter. 
She commented that, other than the policy of not generally naming 
buildings after living persons, there were presently no stated 
guidelines to follow. Treasurer Johnson said that, in the past, 
buildings at Amherst had been named for former presidents of the 
University, United States Presidents from Massachusetts, outstanding 
professors, and other individuals who had made outstanding contri- 
butions, both inside and outside of the University, in such fields 
as the arts, public service, etc. He felt that a system should be 
developed whereby suggestions received can be acknowledged, evalu- 
ated and acted upon. If there is no set policy with regard to the 
naming of buildings, pressures are sometimes brought to bear on the 
Trustees to name a building for a current popular hero of possibly 
transitory fame. 

Dean Soutter emphasized that in the case of the Medical 
School, he feels that its identity would be lost by naming the 
school after an individual and would prefer to have it called 
exactly what it is — the University Medical School with a teaching 
hospital. Chancellor Golino said that in the case of UM/Boston, 
he believes it is still too early to make a decision on the naming

of buildings and colleges. After brief further discussion, it was 
moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the Chairman of the Committee on Buildings 
and Grounds appoint a small committee of her 
own choosing to propose names for buildings, 
subject to approval of the Committee and the 
Board. 

Chairman Knowles next opened discussion of an appropriate 
name and mailing address for the new campus at Columbia Point. 
Chancellor Golino distributed copies of a memorandum to President 
Wood, in which he suggested three possible addresses for the 
campus, which he would like to see named "Boston Harbor Campus." 
After discussion, President Wood asked for and received authoriza- 
tion to work with Chancellor Golino in determining a suitable 
designation and address for the new campus. 

At the Chairman's request, President Wood then reviewed 
the prospective capital outlay situation of the University. He 
reported that he had received letters from Secretary Cronin and 
Secretary Cowin asking for detailed justification of the Univer- 
sity capital outlay budget. Two major items of that budget are 
equipment for the teaching hospital at UM/Worcester and Phase II 
construction at UM/Boston. The President reported that the Univer- 
sity Budget Director, Dr. Philip Gartenberg, is currently preparing 
the requested justification. He said that both he and Chancellor 
Golino feel strongly that Phase II construction at UM/Boston must 
proceed, both in light of the money already invested in the project 
and the future goals of the campus, and that money for the equipment 
in the teaching hospital is also a necessity. Dean Soutter stated 
that, if the hospital is going to be self-supporting, plans must go 
ahead for the equipment including that needed to furnish the X-ray 
treatment and open-heart surgery departments. 

Mrs. Knowles asked Dean Soutter whether the question of 
leasing y_s. buying equipment had been resolved; he replied that it 
had not. Dean Soutter agreed that leasing equipment had the 
advantage of not owning equipment that may soon become obsolete; 
however, leasing equipment can be more expensive than buying it. 
Treasurer Johnson emphasized that leasing equipment places the funds 
needed under the operating budget rather than the capital outlay 
budget, and thus makes them subject to review by the Legislature as 
well as by the Executive Department. Dean Soutter said that he 
would get details of the costs of both renting and buying equipment 
and bring these figures to the Committee for comparison. President 
Wood emphasized that this information is required in the very near 
future. 

President Wood informed the Committee that he and 
Chancellor Golino would attend Mayor White's press conference on

available. 

There being no other business, the meeting was adjourned

MINUTES OF MEETING OF TRUSTEE COMMITTEE ON LONG-RANGE PLANNING 

January 21, 1974; 1:30 p.m. 

Office of the President, University of Massachusetts 
One Washington Mall, Boston, Massachusetts 



PRESENT: Trustees and Trustee Staff : Chairman Rowland, President

Snowden; and Mr. Callahan, representing Commissioner 
Anrig; Secretary Patterson

Office of the President : Vice President Robinson, 
Vice President Lynton, Mr. Cooley, Mr. Kadzis 



The meeting was called to order at 1:30 p.m. by Chairman 
Rowland, who reviewed briefly the mission and procedure of the 
Committee. She stressed that the Committee's purposes (specified 
in Section 12 of the Bylaws) provide the Board with an instrument 
for considering long-range plans for the University as a whole. 
It was noted that the Committee must be concerned both with the 
results of data-analysis and with basic questions of institutional 
philosophy and purpose, and that the Committee has an unusual 
opportunity and responsibility to assist the whole Board through 
thoughtful discussion of what the University is doing, what it 
should do, and what it will do. In terms of Committee procedure 
in pursuing this purpose, Chairman Rowland emphasized again that 
the Committee's deliberations will include University administra- 
tors and others on invitation as need occurs, that it will rely 
upon the staff support provided by Vice President Robinson and her 
associates, and that it will seek to maintain effective communica- 
tion with all other Standing Committees of the Board. 

The Committee then considered appropriate next steps 
with regard to establishment of a Trustee Advisory Council on the 
Fine Arts, initially proposed in discussion at the Committee's 
meeting of November 19, 1973. In the consideration that ensued, 
members of the Committee discussed alternative views of the com- 
position of such a Council. A consensus developed that the Council 
should serve to involve both artists of distinction and persons 
particularly knowledgeable in education in the arts. After 
further discussion of this matter, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees the estab- 
lishment of a Trustee Advisory Council on the 
Fine Arts, with appointments to be made by the 
President following appropriate consultation.

COMMITTEE

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



After this action, the Committee discussed agenda 
priorities for the coming months. President Wood, in this connection, 
emphasized the need for all Trustee Committees, working cooperatively 
on matters which will frequently overlap formal committee juris- 
dictions, to be future-oriented in their agenda planning, rather 
than simply responsive to campus initiatives. 



Committee members agreed that, during the calendar year 
now begun, it would be appropriate to consider major long-range 
planning issues and options lying before each campus of the 
University. Emphasis was placed on the need to deal with major 
general issues (such as those of appropriate long-range mission and 
scope) both for the University as a whole and for its constituent 
campuses, and proceed from such major general matters to specifics, 
rather than the reverse. The view was expressed that, in so doing, 
the Committee could provide an essential service to the full Board, 
suggesting to it, after due study, alternative policy options on 
matters of central importance to the institution, and helping avoid 
the danger of "planning by default." 

President Wood expressed general agreement with these 
emphases, and suggested that the process of the Committee, relative 
to the agenda sequence for the year, might best depend upon appro- 
priate staff papers prepared under Vice President Robinson's 
direction, utilizing information from the campuses and outside 
assistance as necessary, to summarize essential facts and present 
possible policy options for Committee consideration. 

Brief discussion led to agreement that the next meeting 
of the Committee would be held at 1:00 p.m. in the Office of the 
President, February 25, 1974, rather than on February 19, as pre- 
viously scheduled. 

There being no further business to come before the Commit- 
tee, the meeting was adjourned at 3:20 p.m.

The meeting was called to order at 11:45 a.m. by Chair- 
man Healey. 

President Wood opened the discussion of Classifications 
and Personnel Actions for FY74 Merit Increments (Doc. T74-061, 
T74-064, T74-065, and T74-066) by noting that the actions proposed 
were in accordance with the guidelines approved by the Board in 
October, 1973. He stated that the intent of the proposed increases 
is to recognize merit and outstanding achievement and to provide 
equity for professional staff within available resources. 

At the request of the President, Mr. Peter Kaplan, the 
Assistant to the President, presented summary figures on the 
increases. He noted professional advancement awards were made to 
73.0 percent of the eligible professional staff at the Amherst 
campus, 86,6 percent at Boston, and 60.9 percent at Worcester. 
Outstanding achievement increases were awarded to 15.8 percent of 
the eligible professional staff at Amherst, 13.6 percent at 
Boston, and 20.7 percent at Worcester. 

Discussion by the Committee noted that the guidelines 
had been followed, that there had been strict application of the 
merit principles in making the awards, and that the increases had 
been made in accordance with the personnel procedures on the 
campuses. Chancellors Bromery and Golino remarked that there was 
continuing review of the guidelines and criteria for salary 
increases by the faculty on the Amherst and Boston campuses.

Chapter 75 of the General Laws as amended by 
Chapter 648, 1962. The classification, salary 
range, and descriptive job specification for 
each position to which a member of the pro- 
fessional staff is hereby appointed, promoted, 
transferred, or determined shall be as hereafter 
determined by the Board of Trustees or under 
their authority. 



At the request of the President, Treasurer Johnson intro- 
duced the Proposed Rules and Regulations for the Classification of 
Students for Tuition Purposes (Doc. T74-063) . He referred to the 
current practices and procedures under which students are assessed 
the in-state or out-of-state tuition rate, and stated that modifi- 
cation of these procedures is required in order to conform to 
recent legislative and judicial actions. 



Mr. Johnson stated that a student may now appeal a deter- 
mination by his Office that the out-of-state rate should be charged 
and recently this has occurred much more frequently than in the 
past . 

Mr. William Sear son, University Counsel, reviewed the 
current University policy on determination of residency status, 
noting that it includes the requirement that a student be domiciled 
in this state and that he has been a resident of the state for one 
continuous year prior to enrollment. He stated that the problems 
resulting from these rules include the difficulty in determining 
whether a student is, in fact, domiciled within the state, and the 
probability that the rule stating that the domicile and residence 
of a wife follows that of a husband might be claimed by some to be 
discriminatory. Other difficulties arise from the fact that there 
exists no precise standard to guide the President of the University 
in exercising the discretionary authority now given him to adjust

individual cases, thus raising the possibility that some might 
claim unfair treatment; and from the recent enactment of legisla- 
tion lowering the age of majority to eighteen. The latter consider- 
ation will, Mr. Searson stated, require that any new rules, when 
adopted, be retroactive to January 1, 1974. 

In summary, three options open to the Board of Trustees, 
as presented by Mr. Searson and detailed in Document T74-063 are: 
(1) to adopt a uniform tuition rate for in-state and out-of-state 
students. This would have economic consequences for the Univer- 
sity. (2) To require only that a student reside in Massachusetts 
for one year prior to registration for an academic term. The 
annual loss in tuition income under this option would be approxi- 
mately $860,000 per year. (3) To continue with the present policy, 
namely that the student be domiciled in Massachusetts, including a 
one-year "residency" requirement. In the case of applications for 
change to a Massachusetts classification, this would require the 
collection of additional data, resulting in increased administra- 
tive costs. 



President Wood pointed out that the issue of revenue 
lost or gained under any of the options is not directly associated 
with the University budget, but would have other public policy 
consequences; and that the policy ultimately adopted would have 
to take into consideration the separate issue of tuition waiver. 

Chairman Healey inquired whether, given the fact that 
this is a problem faced by other public institutions of higher 
education in the Commonwealth, there has been any joint effort to 
find a solution. Treasurer Johnson replied that there has been 
some; and President Wood stated that some initial steps toward 
determining a policy could be taken by the Board in the absence of 
joint action. In this context, Counsel Searson noted that no state 
statute addresses this issue even indirectly, as the several 
boards of trustees are, by law, given the authority to establish 
tuition rules and regulations. Chairman Healey emphasized that 
problems will remain if the three segments of public higher educa- 
tion adopt conflicting solutions. 

Trustee Gordon asked whether an advisory opinion might 
be requested from the state Attorney General, in order to protect 
the Board from liabilities that might arise retroactively as the 
result of decisions by the courts. Counsel Searson replied that 
the Attorney General, in the past, had declined to provide an 
opinion on a similar issue. 

Trustee Apostola spoke of the immediate concern of Univer 
sity students for tuition matters, and asked that the President, 
under the provisions of the Governance Document, appoint an ad hoc 
multi-campus committee to study the issue of tuition rates, 
considering also the related issues of financial aid and tuition 
waivers, and make its report to the Executive Committee prior to

COMMITTEE 



I

the meeting scheduled for February 20. President Wood agreed to do 
so, and asked that the Chancellors provide him with nominations 
for the Committee as soon as possible. 

Chairman Healey inquired whether the Board of Higher 
Education had addressed the tuition question, and Trustee Gordon, 
as delegate to that Board, replied that it had not. Vice President 
Edelman stated that the Board of Higher Education has a greater 
interest in financial aid, as it administers the state program. 

Trustee Knowles stated that she wished to be recorded as 
opposing any reduction in the proportion of out-of-state students 
resulting from the action ultimately adopted by the Trustees, citing 
the need for diversity in the student body. 

Treasurer Johnson asked whether, pending a final decision 
by the Trustees, his Office might defer decisions on current and 
future student appeals for adjustments of tuition. Chairman Healey 
suggested that the Office of the Treasurer continue to assess 
students according to current policies and practices, and that 
funds be held in escrow by the Treasurer in an account to be estab- 
lished by him to enable rebates where required. It was the con- 
sensus of the Committee that this is a proper and equitable way to 
proceed pending an early decision by the Board of Trustees on future 
policy. 

There being no further business to come before the 
Committee, the meeting adjourned at 12:30 p.m.

The meeting was called to order at 1:00 p.m. by Chairman 
Knowles, who stated that after an inspection of the Dairy Animal 
Facility (South Deerfield ) and the Greenhouse Facility (Amherst 
Campus ) (Doc. T74-069) , by members of the Committee on Buildings 
and Grounds, Vice President Robinson and Planning Director Little- 
field, she proposed acceptance of these facilities. 

After brief discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board of Trustees accept 
the new Dairy Animal Facility (South Deerfield) 
as completed in accordance with plans and 
specifications subject to the completion and/ 
or correction of items on a list on file with the 
Director of Physical Plant, Amherst Campus.

Chairman Knowles next introduced the subject of the 
establishment of a name and address for the new Columbia Point 
Campus of the University which would clearly identify its location 
and its relationship to the University system. Chairman Knowles 
called to the attention of the Committee the joint recommendation 
of President Wood and Chancellor Golino, and after brief 
discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that it 
approve the designation and mailing address

Chairman Knowles then informed the Committee that she had 
discussed with Trustee Pumphret and Treasurer Johnson the subject 
of policy guidelines for the naming of buildings and suggested the 
following: (1) that the present policy of naming buildings only 
for individuals who are no longer living be continued, (2) that 
where the naming of a building for an individual might tend to 
confuse the public as to its purpose, the generic name could be 
used (examples - the Medical School, UM/Worcester , and the Univer- 
sity Library, UM/Amherst) , (3) that major halls and theaters in 
buildings be named as well as the buildings themselves, (4) that 
suggestions for naming buildings be accepted from individuals only 
and not from organizations, and (5) that the campuses be briefed on 
the proper procedure for submitting suggestions for names to the 
Committee. 

Chairman Knowles also suggested that College I and 
College II receive no further designation at this time.

The meeting was called to order at 11:05 a.m. by 
Chairman Healey 

President Wood opened the discussion by reporting on 
efforts to achieve full restoration of the FY 1975 Maintenance 
Budget Request. He said that he was meeting with campus chief 
executives in connection with this and the Capital Outlay Request. 
President Wood emphasized that FY 1975 budget preparation had kept 
the request for funds within stringent and realistic limits. In 
view of this stringency, he said that he considered full restoration 
essential, and that a most important task now is to insure clear 
and adequate justification. He was hopeful that with the assistance 
of campus administrators and his own staff, and with support of 
the Trustees, restoration could be accomplished. 

President Wood then spoke about the proposal advanced 
through the New England Board of Higher Education (NEBHE) for the 
establishment of a School of Veterinary Medicine as a regional 
enterprise to be based in Massachusetts. He noted that the 
Soutter report earlier had raised the possibility of establishing 
a School of Veterinary Medicine at UM/Worcester , but had not given 
this possibility high priority. President Wood said that educa- 
tion in veterinary medicine is a desirable service, but that 
several different options exist by which the service may be pro- 
vided in the future. 

One of these, in the absence of a regional or state 
school of veterinary medicine, would be to contract for the 



I 



I 



I 



I 



COMMITTEE 



I 



I 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



education of veterinary students with such institutions as Purdue 
and Pennsylvania, where good programs are in existence. A second 
option would be for one state in this region to undertake to estab- 
lish its own School of Veterinary Medicine and offer veterinary 
medical training to other states of the region on a contract basis. 
A third option, represented by the NEBHE proposal, could involve the 
creation by compact of an "interstate" regional institution. The 
President said that the third option, in his judgment, raised 
serious questions, and that the land-grant college presidents of this 
region are studying the various options. He expected the results 
of this study to lead to a clearer view of a proper course of 
action within the next several months. 

President Wood next reported to the Committee concerning 
questions about the Marine Station of the University, located 
between Rockport and Gloucester. He reviewed recent actions of 
Professor Charles S. Yentsch, Director of the Station, and questions 
about the Station that have been raised in the press and the Leg- 
islature. President Wood reaffirmed the University's intention to 
continue operation of the Station and to continue to request 
budgetary support in its behalf. At the President's request, 
Chancellor Bromery commented on Professor Yentsch' s role as one part 
of the University's Marine Sciences program, and indicated his 
expectation, in agreement with the President, that the program, 
under any Director, will continue to require the Station and support 
for it. President Wood closed discussion on this subject by 
observing that it illustrates need for the University to reexamine 
organization and lines of communication between the several field 
stations and the University proper. 

Vice President Edelman, at the President's request, 
described to the Committee the status of University efforts to 
work cooperatively with institutions in the private sector on a 
proposal for a more adequate student financial aid program in Massa- 
chusetts. He called attention to a joint report on this subject 
prepared by an interinstitutional ad_ hoc committee for presentation 
to the Public-Private Forum, a state-wide body initiated last year 
by President Wood and President Hallowell of Tufts to enhance 
communication between public and private institutions of higher 
education in the state. Vice President Edelman said that the ad 
hoc committee's findings indicated that state student aid is 
inadequate both for low- and middle-income families. To repair this 
inadequacy, the committee has developed a plan for an Equal 
Opportunity Pool (EOP) , which would provide $35 million for 
grants-in-aid to residents of the Commonwealth desiring to attend 
institutions of higher education. Vice President Edelman pointed 
out that the current General Scholarship Program, operated by the 
Board of Higher Education and funded at $9.5 million per annum, 
would be combined with the EOP under this proposal, requiring a 
budget increase of $25.5 million for student aid in the Commonwealth!

In the following discussion, President Wood commented that he would 
not urge University commitment to the EOP until the University's 
budget situation is clarified. 

Vice President Robinson reported briefly on two items. 
First, in connection with media-raised speculation that UM/Boston 
would have a student population impact on Dorchester and South 
Boston comparable to student population impact on the Allston- 
Brighton area, she said that a review of census tract and other 
data concerning the two areas indicates that such speculation is 
completely unwarranted. Vice President Robinson shared a 
statistical summary of these data with the Committee which made 
the validity of her conclusion clear. 



Secondly, Vice President Robinson reported on current 
activities with regard to Columbia Point peninsula development. 
She said that, since the Mayor's public disclosure of the work 
of his Task Force on peninsula development, various efforts have 
continued. She reported that President Wood and Mr. Thompson of 
the Boston Housing Authority had met with Senator Brooke with 
regard to Federal funding possibilities, that efforts were being 
made to revive retail operations in the shopping mall, that negotiations 
are proceeding with Boston College High School with regard to the 
use of playing fields, and that efforts are being made to secure 
useful public/private advice on ways and means to get peninsula 
development under way. Chairman Healey commented that peninsula 
development essentially must deal with the law of economic 
justification in order to move forward. 

In discussion, Trustee Gordon asked whether it would be 
feasible for the University to rent unused retail store space in 
the shopping mall to use for physical education and recreation. 
Chancellor Golino replied that President Wood had asked him to 
examine this possibility, and said that he would report upon it 
in the future. 



Vice President Lynton reported that progress is being 
made in implementing Board of Trustee policy on tenure voted in 
November, 1972. He said that a first major progress report on 
this matter with regard to UM/Amherst would be made to the Commit- 
tee on Faculty and Educational Policy at its meeting on 
February 21, 1974, and that he expected a comparable progress 
report to be available from UM/Boston at an early date. Vice 
President Lynton observed that there is growing campus understanding 
of two main points of Trustee policy in this regard: (a) that 
tenure must be considered in terms of institutional needs as well 
as individual qualifications and (b) that it must be considered 
in the context of long-range academic planning. In additional 
comment, Vice President Lynton said that tenure planning should be 
ongoing with relatively frequent status reports, be programmatic 
in its basic considerations, and be flexible. Because of the 



I 



I 



I 



COMMITTEE 



I 



I 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

effort to develop such long-range academic personnel planning, Vice 
President Lynton said that it may be necessary to move tenure 
actions for Trustee consideration in May rather than April. 

President Wood asked Counsel Searson and Mr. Kaplan to 
comment on the Proposed Rules and Regulations for the Classification , 
of Students for Tuition Purposes , which had first been discussed 
by the Committee at its meeting of February 6 in connection with 
Doc. T74-063. The alternatives posed in the document were discussed 
by the Committee. In that discussion, Counsel Searson emphasized 
that the University's rules and regulations in this connection must 
be made consistent with judicial decisions and legislation now in 
being. Treasurer Johnson observed that, while this is indeed 
true, the changes involved will leave the University with a need 
over time to clarify and simplify a number of administrative 
processes. After further discussion, upon motion made and 
seconded, it was 

VOTED ; To recommend to the Board of Trustees that the 
rules and regulations for the classification of 
students for tuition purposes, as set forth in 
Trustee Document T74-073, be adopted, effective 
January 1, 1974, and that all other rules and 
regulations pertaining to the classification 
of students for tuition purposes be rescinded 
as of January 1, 1974; and to further recommend 
that students be allowed to file applications 
for a change in tuition classification for the 
Spring Semester of 1974 until April 15, 1974. 

In a brief round of reports from the campuses, Chancellor 
Soutter commented on student financial aid needs at the Medical 
School and expressed a willingness to present a review of substan- 
tive details of the NEBHE report on a School of Veterinary Medicine 
to the Trustees at a later date. Chancellor Bromery reported that 
he and other presidents of Five-College institutions have met with 
the Board of Trustees of Amherst College, and that action may be 
taken by Five-Colleges, Incorporated, to establish a Committee of 
Trustee Representatives of the participating institutions. 
Chancellor Bromery said that he is seeking to secure the library 
of W. E. B. DuBois from Ghana for the University of Massachusetts 
and will go to Ghana in this connection. He reported that the HEW 
Affirmative Action Review of the Amherst campus currently under 
way is proceeding well. Chancellor Golino said that he has 
recently spoken to the UM/Boston faculty urging that, after the 
successful move to Columbia Point, the campus begin a serious 
process of reexamining its existing programs and future plans. 
In this connection, he has asked President Wood to speak to the 
faculty on February 25. 

At the close of the meeting, Trustee Gordon read and 
commented upon a letter he had received regarding the exemplary

The meeting was called to order at 3:40 p.m. by Chairman 
Pumphret. At the request of the Chairman, President Wood commented 
on the agenda for the meeting, stating that hearings will soon be 
held before the House Committee on Ways and Means on the University's 
FY 1975 Maintenance Budget Request. President Wood stated that the 
University will request that most of the funds eliminated during 
Executive Department review be restored when the Legislature acts 
on the budget during its spring session. 

President Wood informed the Committee that the Multi- 
Campus Budget Committee had met twice and that a process was being 
developed by which this multi-campus committee could best aid in 
the development of the budget. 

At the conclusion of his remarks, President Wood asked 
Budget Director Gartenberg to report on the Status of the FY 1975 
Maintenance Budget Request . Dr. Gartenberg reported that since the 
FY 1975 budget was approved by the Board of Trustees in October, it 
had been reviewed by the Board of Higher Education, which had 
approved the entire request with the exception of $300,000. The 
budget was next reviewed by the Office of the Secretary of Educa- 
tional Affairs and was found basically acceptable. It then went to 
the Executive Office of Administration and Finance, where it was 
reduced by approximately $6.5 million. The breakdown of the recom- 
mended budget reductions is as follows: Amherst $2.1 million; 
Worcester $2 million; Boston $.9 million; the remainder for library 
acquisitions and financial aid and other smaller University appro- 
priations .

The State recommends minimal enrollment increases, but 
provided no increase in funding. Chancellor Bromery commented that 
what appeared to be an increase in enrollments for UM/Amherst was 
actually part of a tapering-off process which was necessary in 
order not to adversely affect the basic structure of the Univer- 
sity. Chancellor Bromery stated that the $2 million cut in the 
Amherst budget would not only reduce new programs but would also 
curtail some on-going programs.

Discussion of 
Capital Outlay 
Request 



Mr. Stockwell, Director of the Hospital, commented that 
a "stand-still" budget was especially hard on a new institution 
such as UM/Worcester , where the full-time faculty was not yet com- 
plete. Clinical physicians are needed to teach as well as to 
staff the hospital and money is needed for audio-visual equipment 
for the library and for research support in the animal facilities. 

Chancellor Golino stated that as the budget now stands, 
it allows for no growth at UM/Boston, which he feels would 
adversely affect morale in a campus that has just opened. He said 
that money is needed for additional faculty, for added security 
personnel and for computer activities. 

At the conclusion of the remarks by Chancellors Bromery 
and Golino and Mr. Stockwell, Dr. Gartenberg introduced a discus- 
sion of the Capital Outlay Request . He informed the Committee 
that this request provides for the continuation of Phase II 
activities at UM/Boston — the construction of College III, the Arts 
and Science Building and the Physical Education Building and the 
planning and foundation funds for College IV. It also provides 
for renovations of existing facilities at UM/Amherst and for the 
remainder of the equipment for the Teaching Hospital.

ment 



Report of Mid-

to FY 1974 
Operating Budget 



Dr. Gartenberg next introduced a discussion of Develop - 
ment for the FY 1975 Operating Budget and the FY 1976 Maintenance 
Budget and outlined a suggested procedure to be followed. He said 
that in order to allow time for budget review by both the Multi- 
Campus Budget Committee and the Trustee Committee on the Budget, 
as well as reviews by the administrative offices of the University, 
it was necessary to begin the budget review process in late April 
or early May, as the operating budget is submitted to the Board of 
Trustees in July, and the maintenance budget in October. A brief 
discussion ensued regarding specific budget items and ways in which 
the budget could be improved. However, the consensus was that 
basically the budget was well prepared. 

At the request of Dr. Gartenberg, Mrs. Hanson, Assistant 
Budget Director, reported on the Mid-year Revisions to the FY 1974 
Operating Budget and explained that in accordance with the vote of 
the Board of Trustees on October 3, 1973, whereby revisions to the 
expenditure plans of the campuses are to be reported to the Com- 
mittee on the Budget, revisions to the operating budgets for the 
Amherst and Boston campuses had been made as detailed in the 



I 



I 



COMMITTEE 



I 



I 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



Report to the Board of Trustees Under the Delegation of Authority 
Authorized in Trustee Document T74-024 . She stated her expectation 
that revisions would also be made to the UM/Worcester budget and to 
that of the University Administration and that these revisions would 
also be reported to the Committee. 

Mrs. Hanson also reported that she has been attending 
meetings of the Library Policy Issue Review Committee, which is 
composed of the heads of the various campus libraries, members of 
the faculty library committees and members of the budget offices 
of the University. Members of this committee have been discussing 
common problems and expect to have a formal report within the month. 
Among the accomplishments of this committee is the development of a 
union catalog of serials, whereby students and faculty can determine 
what serials are available in all of the University libraries and 
can request serials from any campus library. It is hoped that in 
the future, by use of computers, it will be possible to learn what 
books are available in particular libraries at any time. 

The Library Policy Issue Review Committee is also working 
on a new approach to the requesting of funds for library acquisi- 
tions, which it is hoped may prove to produce better results than 
have been achieved by past practices. It is expected that this 
approach can be used in the development of the FY 1976 budget. 

In response to a question from Chairman Pumphret, Dr. 
Gartenberg said that at the next meeting of the Committee, now 
scheduled for March 20, the details of the campus program review 
and a set of guidelines for the FY 1975 operating budget and FY 1976 
maintenance budget request would be available. 

Mr. Stockwell commented on the hospital budget for UM/ 
Worcester, stating that a draft budget for additional FY 1975 funds 
had been submitted for review. This budget is now being revised 
and should be ready within two weeks. These funds will be needed 
in the fall of 1975, at which time several floors of the hospital 
are expected to be ready for occupancy.

The meeting was called to order at 12:35 p.m. by Chair- 



man Troy. 



Vice President Lynton presented the Commonwealth Transfer 
Compact (Doc. T74-011) for discussion by the Committee. This 
proposal had previously been before the Committee on July 23, 1973, 
at which time it was returned to the Faculty Senate at UM/Amherst 
for formal review and action. Since that time, it has been approved 
by the Faculty Senate and Chancellor Bromery for UM/Amherst, and is 
now scheduled for action by the University Assembly at UM/Boston on 
March 1, 1974. It will be formally acted upon by the Committee on 
Faculty and Educational Policy and then considered by the Board of 
Trustees on March 6. In the interim, considering the five months 
that have passed since the Compact was last considered by the 
Committee and the fact that the President had already deferred 
action once in the absence of UM/Boston approval, it was brought 
before the Committee in order that the members could be updated on 
its provisions and current status. 

In his review of the Compact, Vice President Lynton stated 
that it is essentially a formal agreement between the segments of 
public higher education in the Commonwealth whereby an Associate in 
Arts or Associate in Science graduate of a public community college 
can transfer his academic credits as a unit to a public four-year 
institution, providing that he meets the normal admissions criteria 
of that institution. The Compact contains the provision that 33 
liberal arts credits shall be included in the two years of study 
at the community college.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Ms. Rahaim, Assistant to the Chancellor at UM/Amherst, 
summarized the experience of that campus with transfer students 
from the community colleges, and noted that 93.5 percent of them 
have been academically successful. The Secretary of the UM/Amherst 
Faculty Senate, Professor Fletcher, stated that following its 
review of the Compact, the Senate had endorsed it virtually 
unanimously. 

Chancellor Golino, reporting on the status of review of 
the Compact at UM/Boston, stated that it had first gone before the 
Committee on Admissions of the Assembly, and then to the Senate of 
each of the Colleges. He stated that some initial confusion had 
resulted from the incorrect assumption that the campus would be 
obligated to accept any graduate of a community college and that 
there had been considerable discussion of perceived implications 
for academic standards. He concluded by expressing the hope and 
belief that the Compact would be approved by the Assembly on 
March 1. 

Associate Vice President Keith, speaking as the Univer- 
sity's representative to the Massachusetts Transfer Review Council, 
stressed the need for prompt action by the University which, he 
noted, is the only segment of public higher education in the 
Commonwealth that has not approved the Compact. He stated that the 
Board of Higher Education is awaiting University action before 
addressing ways of involving private two-year colleges in the 
Compact, and added that failure of the University to approve the 
Compact could have serious implications for the University in its 
attempts to cooperate with other public and private institutions 
in Massachusetts. 

Chairman Troy noted Committee endorsement in principle 
of the Compact, and expressed the hope that approval would be 
forthcoming from UM/Boston on March 1. The Committee will formally 
vote on the Compact at a special meeting prior to the meeting of 
the Board of Trustees on March 6. 

With the consent of the Chairman, Chancellor Soutter 
spoke of the current policy of admitting only Massachusetts 
residents to UM/Worcester , and stated that there is a need to 
clarify the criteria by which the admissions staff at UM/Worcester 
determines the residency status of applicants. He cited specific 
areas of ambiguity in current policy interpretation, and spoke of 
his concern that the admissions staff may be unintentionally 
deviating from policy in the absence of clear guidelines. 

Following discussion, Vice President Lynton suggested 
that explicit guidelines for determination of residency status 
for admissions purposes be developed by the Office of the President, 
followed by faculty review at the Medical School and consideration 
and action by the Board of Trustees. Committee members expressed

agreement, and Chairman Troy asked that this be done. 

During the discussion, the Committee reaffirmed its 
support of the current policy of admitting to the Medical School 
only Massachusetts residents, as they are ultimately defined, at 
least until the campus reaches full projected enrollment, with 
review of the policy to take place at that time. 

At the invitation of the Chairman, Vice President Lyhton 
introduced the request for Trustee concurrence in the Offer of 
Employment with Tenure to Professor Emmon W. Bach, UM/Amherst (Doc. 



T74-071) . He stated that the appointment would bring a most dis- 
tinguished and highly regarded linguist to the Amherst campus, 
thereby adding to the stature of a strong department. He cited the 
proposal to have Professor Bach teach half time at Hampshire College 
and half time at the University, noting the importance of the 
appointment to the Five-Colleges community, and stated that the 
proposed action has the approval of President Wood. 

Vice Chancellor Gluckstern stated that Professor Bach is 
currently a Visiting Professor at UM/Amherst, and that he is 
regarded as a superior teacher. Upon inquiry from Trustee Apostola, 
Vice Chancellor Gluckstern clarified the proposed salary arrange- 
ment, stating that it would be divided evenly between Hampshire 
College and the University. 

Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that it 

concur with the proposed appointment of Emmon W. 
Bach as Professor of Linguistics with tenure, 
University of Massachusetts at Amherst, effective 
September 1, 1974. 

Chairman Troy next turned to Vice President Lynton for a 
discussion of the Progress Report on Personnel Planning, UM/Amherst 
(Doc. T74-070) . Noting that an analogous report is now in hand for 
UM/Boston, Dr. Lynton characterized faculty personnel planning as 
an ongoing process which addresses programmatic questions, thereby 
providing an overall qualitative framework within which statistical 
date on tenure, age, enrollment projections and the like become more 
meaningful. He stated that faculty personnel plans serve two 
primary purposes: (1) to provide "a look by a campus at itself and 
at the future;" and (2) under the provisions of the November 1972 
tenure policy of the Board of Trustees, to provide the framework 
within which tenure recommendations can be made. He stated that 
President's Office consideration of specific tenure recommendations 
will depend on their being made in accordance with these and sub- 
sequent plans, and will be reflected in tenure recommendations made 
this spring. Vice President Lynton concluded by saying that in the 
future such progress reports should be provided annually in the fall

In commenting on the UM/Amherst document, Vice Chancellor 
Gluckstern stated that the several departments and schools on the 
campus are now being asked to respond to the plan, and remarked 
that the figures on faculty positions would change as enumeration 
techniques and projections are refined. Dr. Gluckstern stressed 
that the preparation of the reports is a process which is to include: 
faculty involvement, and which must begin with and be firmly based 
on departmental considerations. The assistance of the Personnel 
Policy Committee of the Faculty Senate was cited; and Dr. Gluck- 
stern expressed the intent to foster faculty exchanges with UM/ 
Boston noting that two exchanges are scheduled for the fall 
semester. 

Professor Fletcher stated that the Faculty Senate 
Personnel Policy Committee was generally pleased with its involve- 
ment and with the result. He stated that the Committee would now 
begin to look at the academic implications of having a high pro- 
portion of tenured faculty at a time of minimal or no growth at the 
campus. The Faculty Senate, he said, sees the document as a 
progress report rather than as a final document. 

Chancellor Golino characterized the recently completed 
UM/Boston document as "a preliminary and tentative interim report," 
saying that he expected refinements would be accomplished by 
June 1. He noted that this is the first time the UM/Boston faculty 
has undertaken such an effort; and stated that it is important to 
realize that while the percentages of tenured faculty in some of 
the newer and smaller departments are high, the absolute numbers 
of such faculty are small. 

Trustee Cagle noted that limited future hiring of new 
faculty at the Amherst campus might, as Vice Chancellor Gluckstern 
had pointed out, have negative consequences for Affirmative Action 
efforts, and stressed the importance of hiring minority faculty 
and staff at both campuses. Chairman Troy noted the sense of the 
discussion that the commitment to Affirmative Action must be 
maintained. 

In conclusion, Chairman Troy commended the staff at UM/ 
Amherst for its intelligent and careful following of what is 
implied in the Trustees' 1972 tenure guidelines, and thanked Vice 
President Lynton for his systematic follow-through in helping to 
develop the plan. 

At the request of the Chairman, Vice President Lynton 
addressed the program on Summer Study in Japan, UM/Amherst (Doc. 
T74-072) . He stated that the program involves no departures from 
existing policy regarding study abroad and has no additional 
University costs associated with it, and therefore is brought to 
the Committee for its information and requires no formal action.

MINUTES OF MEETING OF TRUSTEE COMMITTEE ON IONG-RANGE PLANNING 

February 25, 1974; 1:30 p.m.

UM/Boston : Chancellor Golino 

Office of the President : Vice President Lynton, Vice

Office of the Commissioner of Education : Mr. John 
Callahan 



The meeting was called to order at 1:30 p.m. by Chairman 
Rowland, who reminded the Committee that its work for the spring 
of 1974 had been set forth at its last meeting. 

President Wood commented that the members of the 
Committee on Long-Range Planning had concurred that its work 
for the spring would be a discussion of enrollment planning, with 
an emphasis on UM/Boston. Discussion of program planning and space 
utilization will come later, with special attention to UM/Worcester 
and UM/Amherst. 

President Wood stated that he hoped the Committee would 
involve the Chancellors and the Vice Presidents as intensively as 
possible in an effort to benefit from their professional insights. 
He said that it is essential that enrollment projections be deter- 
mined for the next several years before the next budget is prepared. 

Vice President Robinson reviewed the original plan for 
UM/Boston, which was based on a projected enrollment of 15,000 
students, and the considerations which led to a reduced goal of 
12,500 students. These considerations included reduced state-wide 
enrollment projections. In choosing between a 10,000 and 12,500 
goal, the emphasis was on the physical development of the campus. 

Chairman Rowland asked Mr. Gary Cooley, Director of 
Analytical Studies, to discuss with the Committee various elements 
of enrollment planning. He cited the dropping birth rate, the 
decreasing number of students going on to higher education from 
high school, the rise in the number of students desiring career- 



I 



I 



COMMITTEE 



I 



I 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

oriented educations and the number of proprietary institutions 
offering career and technical training as factors affecting enroll- 
ment projections nationally. He noted that there is an increase 
in the number of students going on to graduate and professional 
study. Mr. Cooley indicated that the yield on acceptances at 
UM/Boston was higher than national norms due either to an increase 
in the popularity of the campus to students or to the fact that the 
applicant pool has a low multiple application pattern, or both. 

Discussion ensued of the various alternatives in size, 
growth rate, and mix of students, i.e. proportion of graduate 
students, upper division students, and part-time students. Chairman 
Rowland emphasized the importance of the Committee's becoming 
involved in the early planning stages of the campus programs, 
before decisions have been made. In order to aid the campuses in 
their planning and to avoid duplication of effort, it was suggested 
that parameters be established by the Committee within which the 
campus planning committees could operate. 

Chancellor Golino expressed his feeling that Colleges I 
and II need a period of stability in which to establish their own 
identity. He stated that he would welcome the setting of parameters 
within which the campus planning committees could work. 

After discussion with reference to what parameters should 
be set, Chairman Rowland requested the Office of the President to 
prepare a paper discussing alternative enrollment configurations 
for the Boston campus and asked that this paper be presented to 
the Committee at a later meeting for its consideration. 

The meeting adjourned at 3:05 p.m.

The meeting was called to order at 12:05 p.m. by 
Chairman Troy. 

The Chairman introduced the proposed Commonwealth Trans- 
fer Compact (Doc. T74-011B) . He noted that central to this agree- 
ment between the segments of public higher education in Massachu- 
setts is the provision whereby an Associate in Arts or Associate 
in Science graduate of a state community college can, if admitted 
to a public four-year institution under the normal procedures, 
transfer as a unit, rather than on an individual course basis, 
the academic credits earned at the community college. Chairman 
Troy also noted that in certain individual cases where specific 
departmental graduation requirements cannot be met during the 
final two years of study at the four-year institution, an addi- 
tional period of study beyond the senior year would be required. 
The Chairman stated that the Compact had been approved by the 
Faculty Senate at UM/Amherst; and that following the first of two 
required readings before the University Assembly at UM/Boston, it 
had been endorsed with amendments which, according to Chancellor 
Golino, do not contravene the basic intent of the agreement. (See 
Minutes of Committee on Faculty and Educational Policy for July 23, 
1973, pages 1-2; and February 21, 1974, pages 1-2, for previous 
discussions . ) 

In response to an inquiry from Trustee Boyden, President 
Wood cited the following points regarding the Compact: (1) the 



I 



COMMITTEE 



I 



I 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

appropriateness of the University accepting community college trans- 
fer credits on a systematic and regularized basis, given the 
positive experience at UM/Amherst with transfer students; (2) the 
timeliness of the Compact in providing a pool of candidates for 
admission; and (3) the fact that the Compact has now been reviewed 
and endorsed by the other segments of public higher education. 



Following further brief discussion, it was moved, seconded 



and 



VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that it 
adopt and ratify the Commonwealth Transfer 
Compact as set forth in Document T74-011B. 

At the invitation of the Chairman, Vice President Lynton 
and Vice Chancellor Gluckstern addressed the proposed Trustee con- 
currence in the Offer of Employment with Tenure to Harold S. Stone , 
UM/Amherst (Doc. T74-074) . 



Dr. Lynton remarked that the appointment has the strong 
endorsement of the President's Office because of the strength 
Dr. Stone would bring to the activities in computer science and 
engineering on the Amherst campus. He noted also that the pro- 
posed appointment is made in the context of the recent UM/Amherst 
personnel plan, and therefore with the understanding that future 
tenure recommendations from the Department of Electrical Engineer- 
ing, and the College of Engineering generally, would be studied and 
reviewed most carefully, as discussed in the President's February 5 
memorandum of endorsement to the Committee and the Board (Doc. T74- 
074, p. 1). Vice Chancellor Gluckstern noted that the appointment 
would strengthen cooperation between the Departments of Computer 
and Electrical Engineering and Computer Information Sciences. 

Trustee Cagle expressed concern about the Affirmative 
Action efforts at the University, noting that during his service 
as a Trustee he has not observed any proposed appointments with 
tenure for minority persons, and stated the particular importance 
of having minority people in the senior faculty. Trustee Apostola 
expressed the feeling that "the School of Engineering . . . has been 
particularly reluctant to engage in active Affirmative Action 
policy," and that "an offer of tenure to another professor in a 
school that is already heavily tenured and whose enrollments are 
declining would only seem to perpetuate the composition of that 
faculty and the composition of the student body that comes out of 
that faculty." 

Chairman Troy stated that he shared Trustee Cagle 's con- 
cerns on the broader issue of Affirmative Action, and would comment 
on that in his report to the Board at the afternoon meeting. He 
further stated that this particular appointment, because of its 
relationships with computer and information science and the reser- 
vations and implications of the President's memorandum, is an appro- 
priate action to take.

In this connection, Chancellor Bromery remarked that the 
available number of minority faculty candidates in engineering is 
very limited, and that he and Dean Picha have had an initial dis- 
cussion with a private foundation in an attempt to increase the 
resource pool of such minority faculty. 

After further discussion, it was moved, seconded and

The meeting was called to order by Chairman Healey at 
11:10 a.m. 

Chairman Healey invited President Wood to review with the 
Executive Committee principal current developments affecting the 
University. 

President Wood said that the main matter he would bring 
before the Executive Committee was to report on his recommendations 
concerning the charge and composition for a Search Committee for 
the Chancellorship at UM/Worcester, as requested by the Board of 
Trustees by vote at the February 1974 meeting. President Wood 
said that he had consulted with Chancellor Soutter, and would 
report later in the meeting with regard to the status of the 
development of the Search Committee. 

Before getting to that matter, however, President Wood 
asked time to bring the Executive Committee up to date on events 
since the March Board meeting, in order to obtain Committee 
reactions in preparation for upcoming decisions. 

At the President's request, Mr. Cass briefed the Committee 
on House Budget hearings. Mr. Cass said that it should not be 
unexpected that the House would seek a cut of at least $60 million 
in the Governor's Budget, and that there was the possibility of a 
new "Shepard Amendment." The University, as the Trustees know, pre- 
sented its case for restoration of its initial requests as against 
cuts proposed by the Governor in testimony before the House Ways and

Means Committee; President Wood led in this presentation assisted 
by the Chancellors and other senior administrative personnel. 
During the course of the testimony, Mr. Cass said, the University 
was asked questions about certain areas of its budget operations 
during the current year, including particularly fund transfers. 
Chairman Healey advised continued openness in providing information 
to the Legislature, perhaps moving to a quarterly report on trans- 
fers with backup explanation, in order to be sure of Legislative 
understanding of the University's budgetary operations. President 
Wood said that the University already provides much information in 
this regard but agreed that efforts should be made to improve. 

President Wood then reported briefly on matters involving 
capital outlay, the Board of Higher Education, and the University. 
He said that the first capital outlay budget in two years is 
expected, but that the $45 million mark for higher education state- 
wide at all levels is below University of Massachusetts needs 
alone for Phase II capital construction at Boston. President Wood 
said that the Board of Higher Education had asked the University to 
propose what it would request within the Governor's stated mark 
of $45 million, but that he had declined to do this. President 
Wood said that the capital outlay needs to complete the already 
designed and needed second phase of the Harbor Campus of the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts at Boston had been long established and 
were integral to completion of the State's major public university 
branch in eastern Massachusetts, a commitment made by the State 
some years back as essential to the educational welfare of its 
citizens. President Wood said that he had told the Board of 
Higher Education once again that the real capital outlay needs of 
the University were at the $70 million mark and must remain stated 
at that level. President Wood said that the Chairman and the 
Chancellor of the Board of Higher Education agreed to include the 
entire University recommendation of $70 million in their own pro- 
posal to the State administration, but to keep this apart from the 
$45 million statewide capital outlay. 

President Wood then asked Mr. Cass to report on pending 
legislation. Mr. Cass said that the principal day for hearings 
on legislation desired by the University will be April 17, and 
that several bills involving the University to be heard then will 
include the Group Practice Plan and the Hospital Trust Fund Bill. 
He said further that bills on indemnification of Trustees and on 
exemptions for Trustees to be employed by the University without 
compensation have already been heard. Mr. Cass commented that a 
hearing on the Veterinary School Bill is scheduled for April 9 at 
the Gardner Auditorium in the Capitol building. President Wood 
said that he will have a report ready for the Board of Trustees at 
its next meeting with regard to this subject. There was discussion 
among members of the Executive Committee with regard to the Univer- 
sity's possible position with regard to a Veterinary School.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

President Wood reported briefly on activities with the 
Public/Private Forum, the consultative body of private and public 
institutions brought together by President Hallowell and himself in 
the spring of 1973. He said that a revised proposal for an Equal 
Opportunity Pool, enabling greater cooperative public/private 
service to students and additional scholarship support, had been 
presented to the Forum for their reactions. 

President Wood noted that increased care to insure that 
tenure decisions will be made within a context of adequate, ongoing 
program and personnel planning would mean that, for the current 
year, tenure decisions would be postponed for concurrence to the 
May meeting of the Board of Trustees. He said that he does not 
expect this postponement to become customary, but to be a function 
of this year's initiation of increased emphasis on planning. 

At the President's request, a draft memorandum with 
regard to the composition and guidelines of a Search Committee for 
a Chancellor, University of Massachusetts at Worcester, was dis- 
tributed to the members of the Committee for its information. 
President Wood commented that the draft had been discussed with 
Chancellor Soutter and others, and had been prepared with the full 
knowledge that it will be necessary for the Search and Visiting 
Committees to be able to work in tandem. Vice President Edelman 
reported on progress in establishing the Visiting Committee. There 
was discussion in the Executive Committee concerning the size of 
the Committee and the composition of its membership. Concern was 
expressed that Committee size might become too large, and it was 
agreed that, to the extent possible, membership should be limited 
to the number originally agreed upon plus two Trustees and faculty 
representation. 

President Wood restated the need for the Visiting Com- 
mittee to be in existence prior to the Search Committee, and for 
the two groups to have productive interaction. He asked the 
Executive Committee to review the ideas and materials presented 
at this meeting with regard to the Visiting Committee and the 
Search Committee, and to provide him with their written comments. 

Chancellor Soutter reported that the Medical School had 
temporarily halted enrollment at the maximum of 33 students for the 
next academic year. President Wood expressed his concern at this 
statement and emphasized his views that the commitment had already 
been made by the University to accept at least 40 students, with an 
increase depending upon budget outcome. 

Chancellor Soutter further reported on the status of 
equipment approvals for the Teaching Hospital, and he and the 
President agreed to take whatever action might be appropriate to 
move these forward.

Chancellor Soutter spoke of his concern at the number and 
cost of change orders in construction of the Teaching Hospital, 
which he said could be outlined in great detail. Under questioning, 
he indicated that the great bulk of the change orders had not been 
initiated by the University and were therefore not costs assignable 
to the institution. Chairman Healey emphasized this point, saying 
that if change orders had been necessitated not by University 
initiative, their costs should not be considered a University 
responsibility, and that the Bureau of Building Construction would 
need to find alternative means for handling them. 

There being no further business to come before the 
Committee, the meeting was adjourned at 12:45 p.m.

At the request of the Chairman, Vice Chancellor Gage 
introduced the Proposed Trustee Alcoholic Beverages Policy State - 
ment (Doc. T74-080) , and the Proposed Alcoholic Beverages Rules and 
Regulations, UM/Amherst (Doc. T74-081) . The proposed rules and 
regulations for UM/Amherst had been considered by the Committee in 
January (Minutes of the Committee on Student Affairs, January 14, 
1974, p. 2), following which further review had taken place at the 
campus. The general Trustee Policy Statement had been prepared by 
the Office of the President, and includes the provision that 
specific campus rules and regulations are to be developed by the 
individual campuses, consistent with applicable state statutes and 
regulations as well as Trustee policies. The two documents were 
now brought before the Committee for comment and review prior to 
action by the Executive Committee and the Board. 

Vice Chancellor Gage reported that the appropriate 
campus constituencies at UM/Amherst were now in agreement that the 
proposed rules and regulations as set forth in Document T74-081 werej 
an appropriate statement of policy for that campus. In response to 
an inquiry from the Chairman, Vice Chancellor Gage confirmed that 
the provisions of that Document are now acceptable to the Profes- 
sional Association; and Chancellor Bromery stated that the Document 
had been amended to allow for the continued serving of alcoholic 
beverages at the "Top of the Campus" restaurant. Associate Vice

President Keith noted that the Document now before the Committee 
had been approved by University Counsel. Mr. Sear son stated that 
since the rules and regulations applied also to the faculty and 
staff, the reference to students in the caption should be deleted. 

Vice Chancellor Gage, in response to a question by the 
Chairman, explained that the provision of Section 5(b) whereby the 
sale of alcoholic beverages by students and student organizations 
is limited to beer and wine only, results from the fact that such 
sale by students and their organizations is authorized only upon 
issuance of a one-day license, and that such a license restricts 
sales to beer and wine. 

Following additional clarification and further discussion, 
it was the sense of the Committee that its endorsement of Documents 
T74-080 and T74-081 be transmitted to the Executive Committee. 
Chairman Shaler stated that he anticipated receiving proposed 
rules and regulations from UM/Boston, and Chancellor Golino con- 
firmed that these would be forthcoming at an early date. 

The Chairman then turned to Mr. Gary Cooley, Director of 
Analytical Studies in the Office of the President, for a Prelim- 
inary Discussion of University-Wide Information Needs on Student 
Characteristics . Mr. Cooley reported for the Committee's informa- 
tion that during the past months the initial design of a computer- 
supported University-wide Management Information System has been 
receiving attention, and that it will include five principal areas: 
student records, class and course records, personnel, finance, and 
facilities. Data in each of these areas, when brought together, 
can then be combined in different ways to yield information that 
will be useful both for management and planning purposes. 

Mr. Cooley explained that it is only the aggregated data 
that would be analyzed and studied, and at President Wood's request 
discussed two aspects of "student-flow processes" — (1) "enrollment 
projection processes, " which permit future projections of enroll- 
ment by student level and academic major for specific types of 
student populations; and (2) "transition processes," which permit, 
for example, analysis of how student populations pass into, through 
and out of an institution in terms of choice of major, change of 
major, attrition, and graduation rates. 

President Wood pointed out that such aggregated data 
have both scholarly and institutional decision-making value in 
terms of the prediction of the performance of particular groups of 
students at each of the campuses, and in terms of future demands 
upon faculty and budget resources that can be predicted from 
changes in enrollment patterns and course offerings. 

Chancellor Bromery endorsed the concept of management 
information systems generally, but expressed concern about the 
attendant dangers of "the tendency to move toward the mechanization 



I

COMMITTEE 



I

of admissions," and the corresponding reduction in the role of 
individual human judgment in decision-making. President Wood, Vice 
President Lynton, and Chancellor Golino emphasized their awareness 
of these dangers, but expressed the need for more valid and reliable 
data in order to reach informed conclusions tempered with individual 
judgment. 

Chancellor Bromery asserted the importance of ensuring 
that the development of aggregated data not lead to a situation 
where information on an individual can be derived from it and used 
for undesirable purposes. Vice President Lynton emphasized that a 
key to the successful and intelligent use of a management informa- 
tion system is a design whereby only the statistical aggregations 
and summaries emerge, and protection of the individual is built in. 
Mr. Cooley stated that while information on individuals is obviously 
required in first establishing categories for study and analysis, 
the system is designed so that the information on individuals simply 
is not reported in the final group tabulations and comparisons, 
and is not made available. 

Associate Vice President Keith stated that three central 
issues that must be addressed in any such system are accountability 
(i.e., "who is required to report what, and when?"); confidentiality; 
and accessibility (i.e., "who is to have access to the data?"). 

Following further brief discussion, and there being no 
further business to come before the Committee, the meeting 
adjourned at 2:35 p.m. 

Addendum 

At the request of Vice Chancellor Gage, the discussion of 
the status of tuition waivers for residence hall counselors at UM/ 
Amherst, as reported in the Minutes of the Committee meeting of 
January 14, 1974, p. 2, is amended to read as follows: "The two-year 
trial program earlier approved by the Board of Trustees (Doc. T72- 
175) has provided the base for only an incomplete evaluation of 
counselor effectiveness. A preliminary evaluation report has been 
prepared . . . ."

MINUTES OF MEETING OF TRUSTEE COMMITTEE ON THE BUDGET 

March 20, 1974; 3:30 p.m. 

Office of the President, University of Massachusetts 
One Washington Mall, Boston, Massachusetts 



PRESENT: Trustees and Trustee Staff : Chairman Pumphret, President 
Wood; Trustees Cagle, Croce, Robertson, Troy; Treasurer 
Johnson, Miss Eichel 

Office of the President : Vice President Lynton, Budget 
Director Gartenberg, Mr. Cass, Mrs. Hanson 

UM/Amherst : Dr. Gulko 

UM/Worcester : Mr. Cathey 



The meeting was called to order at 3:45 p.m. by Chairman 
Pumphret. President Wood informed the Committee that the roles of 
the Multicampus and Trustee budget committees as set forth in the 
University Governance Statement are becoming more clearly defined. 
He said that the Multicampus budget committee will advise the 
President in such areas as program mixes and priorities of the 
various campuses. He stated that he feels that the major work of 
the Trustee budget committee will come nearer the end of the budget- 
ing process, after the campus budgets are prepared but before the 
formal budgets are presented. 

President Wood referred to the material on suggested 
budget development guidelines and campus program review procedures 
which had been circulated to the Committee earlier in the month 
and asked for comments, suggestions and criticisms of this 
material . 

Chairman Pumphret stated that it was important that the 
Committee be in agreement as to how deeply involved it should 
become in the actual development of the budget, whether it should 
be advisory to the campus budget personnel or should simply react 
to the campus budgets after they are presented by the campuses. 

At the request of Chairman Pumphret, Dr. Gartenberg, 
Director of the Budget, explained the purpose of the Campus Program 
Review, informing the Committee that this review provides the 
framework by which both the FY 1975 Operating Budget and the FY 1976 
Maintenance Budget Request are developed, and that this campus 
program review would be presented to the Committees on the Budget 
before either the FY 1975 Operating Budget or the FY 1976 Mainten- 
ance Budget Request is presented to the Trustees for formal action, 



I 



COMMITTEE 



I 



I 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Trustee Troy emphasized the importance of allowing enough 
time between the program review and the submission of the formal 
budget so that any questions raised could be answered before action 
had to be taken by the Committee. Trustee Robertson suggested that 
wherever major changes in programs, additions or deletions are 
requested, supporting data should be provided giving the reasons 
for such requests and the alternatives and priorities. 

Trustee Croce asked how the budgets of the various 
campuses were developed and Dr. Gulko and Mr. Cathey explained 
the procedures used by the Amherst and Worcester budget offices, 
respectively. 

Dr. Gartenberg explained the purpose and timing of the 
various budget processes, as set forth in the Budget Development 
Guidelines , indicating that Legislative deadlines had to be met, 
as well as deadlines for submission to the Board of Trustees and 
deadlines dictated by the University's fiscal year. In order to 
meet these various dates, the campus program review must take place 
in late April or early May, at which time the campuses are asked 
to indicate the budget status for the current fiscal year, their 
plans for FY 1975 and the direction in which they expect to go in 
FY 1976. The Committee on the Budget must be in a position to 
recommend the operating budget for the coming fiscal year to the 
Board of Trustees in August and the maintenance budget request for 
the following year, in October. 

Dr. Gartenberg stated that there would be two parts to 
the FY 1975 Operating Budget document: a summary document which 
will be transmitted to the Board for formal approval; and a 
detailed campus expenditure plan, which should serve (1) as a 
basis for planning and allocating fund expenditures on the campus, 
(2) as a basis for developing the fiscal aspect of campus manage- 
ment reporting and analysis, and (3) as a basis for responding to 
specific questions raised by the Board of Trustees, the Trustee 
Budget Committee, and the Multicampus Budget Committee. 

Dr. Gartenberg stated that, in addition to setting a time 
schedule for budget development, the guidelines also outline the 
level of detail and the data on funds available which should be 
included. 

Chairman Pumphret stressed the importance of consistency 
in the reporting of the various parts of the budget in order that 
comparisons can more easily be made. 

President Wood suggested that three informal hearings be 
held with members of the Committee on the Budget, the Chancellors, 
and the campus budget officers with regard to basic increases, 
tradeoffs and priorities in their individual budgets before a 
formal presentation is made by the President to the Committee.

The meeting was called to order at 10:30 a.m. by Trustee 
Pumphret who had been designated by Chairman Gordon to act as 
Chairman in his absence. 

At the invitation of the Chairman, Mr. John Wood of the 
firm of Standish, Ayer and Wood, Inc., Investment Counsel to the 
University, presented the University of Massachusetts Endowment 
Fund: Proposed Investment Program, March 21, 1974 (Doc. T74-082) . 
Mr. Wood reported his recommendation that the Endowment Fund port- 
folio holdings of oil company securities be shifted toward a 
balance of domestic and international firms, and outlined his 
reasons for recommending the purchase of Marathan Oil securities. 
Following discussion, and in accordance with the Vote of the Board 
of Trustees of June 30, 1966, empowering Kenneth W. Johnson, as 
Treasurer of the University of Massachusetts, to take certain 
actions relative to the endowment and trust funds of the University, 
it was moved, seconded and

VOTED : To authorize and empower Kenneth W. Johnson, 
Treasurer of the University of Massachusetts, 
to purchase into the endowment fund of the 
University, from available uninvested endow- 
ment fund cash and at a purchase price of 
$110.37 per share, 45 shares of Johnson and 
Johnson common stock previously received by 
the University as a trust fund gift. 

The Chairman next turned to Treasurer Johnson for a pre- 
sentation on the proposed Insurance Consultant and Review of Lia - 
bility Insurance Questions (Doc. T74-076) . Mr. Johnson stated that 
in an attempt to address current and anticipated needs for lia- 
bility insurance coverage, considering particularly the planned 
opening of the Teaching Hospital at UM/Worcester , he and Chairman 
Gordon were recommending that the University make use of an inde- 
pendent insurance consultant, and had identified the firm of Joseph 
H. Albert and Associates as the consultant they wish to employ. 
Mr. Johnson added that as specific priority insurance needs were 
identified from time to time, he would prepare a work order for the 
preparation of appropriate specifications for insurance coverage 
by the Albert firm. 

Subsequent to that initial step, the procedure as dis- 
cussed by Chairman Pumphret and Mr. Johnson would include the 
solicitation of bids from qualified insurance firms, with the 
resulting specific proposals being brought before the Committee for 
approval. 

Following discussion, Mr. Joseph Albert was asked to join 
with the Committee and was introduced to the members. He summarized 
his experience in developing insurance programs and discussed his 
anticipated role in designing suitable specifications for coverage 
prior to the beginning of negotiations with insurance companies. 

After Mr. Albert's leaving the meeting and following 
further discussion, it was the sense of the Committee that the 
employment of Joseph H. Albert and Associates for the study of 
specific insurance needs and programs and the prepartion of recom- 
mendations, consistent with priorities, is an appropriate step to 
take.

COMMITTEE

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

At the Chairman's request, Treasurer Johnson next 
addressed the Designation of Use of Income from the Murray D. and 
Anne H. Lincoln Endowment Fund (Doc. T74-077). Mr. Johnson 



recounted for the Committee the intent of the bequest that the 
income from the endowment fund be used essentially for unrestricted 
purposes, but directed toward long-range planning and innovative 
programs that cannot be wholly funded from state-appropriated and 
other monies. It is anticipated that the principal of this fund 
will soon exceed $1,500,000. Accordingly, Mr. Johnson presented 
his recommendation for a policy procedure whereby the Board of 
Trustees would have control over the income, to be expended from 
time to time upon vote of the Board based upon the President's 
recommendation for specific plans and programs. 

Trustee Crowley raised questions concerning aspects of the 
instrument which established the endowment fund, and expressed con- 
cern about the proposed use of any such funds for multi-campus 
purposes when the trust establishing the fund was executed prior to 
the development of the University as a multi-campus institution. 
Mr. Crowley endorsed the portion of the recommendation providing 
for Board of Trustee control of such unrestricted endowment funds, 
but urged thorough study by the administration and Trustees of 
guidelines and criteria for the use of the funds for University-wide 
rather than single-campus planning and programs. Accordingly, he 
urged postponement of the proposed Vote designating use of fund 
income for University-wide planning and innovative programs pending 
such study. 

Chairman Pumphret noted that the determination of the use 
of income from unrestricted trust funds established during the 
earlier years of the University is an issue of long standing, and 
the ensuing discussion noted the merit of a study as proposed by 
Trustee Crowley. 

Noting that the Committee at this meeting was being asked 
to address the issue of permanent financing for the Murray D. 
Lincoln Campus Center and garage operation at UM/Amherst, Chairman 
Pumphret proposed that a final policy decision by the Committee and 
Board be deferred, and that in the interim funds be borrowed from 
the income of the Lincoln endowment fund for the purpose of 
assisting in meeting current debt service payments of the Campus 
Center garage. Trustee Crowley and Trustee Troy endorsed these two 
proposed concurrent actions; and discussion noted that the loan 
would not be interest-free. Accordingly, it was moved by Trustee 
Crowley, seconded, and 

VOTED ; To recommend to the Board of Trustees that the 

Treasurer of the University, Kenneth W. Johnson, 
upon the request of the President of the Univer- 
sity, be authorized to loan an amount not to 
exceed $50,000 from accumulated income of the 
Murray D. and Anne H. Lincoln Fund to the Campus 
Center Trust Fund for the purpose of assisting in 
meeting debt service.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Chairman Pumphret spoke to the issue of Campus Center 
Financing (UMBA Project XI), UM/Amherst (Doc. T74-078) by stating 
that the University of Massachusetts Building Authority is attempt- 
ing to negotiate the sale of bonds in the amount of $21,100,000 for 
the permanent financing of the Campus Center and parking garage 
operation, adding that the existing temporary notes mature on 
April 15, 1974, and the statuatory authority for temporary financing 
of the Center expires on July 6, 1974. He noted that the establish- 
ment of permanent financing will permit the budgeting of debt 
service payments on a more systematic long-range basis than is now 
possible. 

The Chairman outlined the procedure that would be followed 
in offering the bonds for sale, and stated that more complete infor- 
mation would be available following a meeting of the Building 
Authority and others on March 27, and that a more complete and infor- 
mative report could then be made to the Committee and the Board. 
For that reason, he said, he would not propose that any action be 
taken at this time, and Treasurer Johnson concurred. Mr. Johnson 
commended the members of the Chancellor's staff and the student 
representatives that had been involved in reexamining the operation 
and finances of the Campus Center, and Chairman Pumphret stated 
that the fact that the Committee is now able to begin to address 
itself to specific steps in permanent financing is testimony of 
their efforts. 

The Chairman then turned to a discussion of the Bookshop 
Trust Fund, UM/Boston . Vice Chancellor Hamilton reported that 
approximately three years ago, the UM/Boston administration had 
purchased books and materials from the bookstore operation at UM/ 
Amherst in order to begin to offer a bookstore service at the new 
campus, and that the negotiated value of the inventory transferred 
had been set at $108,500. According to Dr. Hamilton, it has become 
increasingly clear to the UM/Boston administration that the cost 
of the initial inventory could not be repaid within a reasonable 
time if the campus continued to manage and operate the bookstore. 
Therefore, following the example of other colleges and universities, 
they began to explore the alternative of having the bookstore 
operated on a concession basis, and have identified and examined 
six firms which operate such concessions. 

Specifications for the awarding of a bookstore concession 
and its operation have been developed, and have been reviewed and 
approved by the Treasurer and General Counsel of the University. 
The action now proposed by Vice Chancellor Hamilton would permit 
the solicitation of bids for a concession operation, and he stated 
his expectation that bids would be received from no fewer than six 
concessionaires. Under this method of operation, he stated, he 
anticipated that the debt of $108,500 can be repaid to UM/Amherst 
in five or six years. 



Trustee Cagle inquired whether, in view of some apparently 






I 



COMMITTEE 



I 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

unsatisfactory experiences with the cafeteria concession at UM/ 
Boston, there is to be any provision made for student involvement 
in negotiations prior to the awarding of a contract. Vice Chan- 
cellor Hamilton replied that the specifications require the estab- 
lishment of a management advisory committee comprised of faculty, 
staff, and students; and that the University may require the 
termination of the employment of any employee of the concessionaire 
whose performance proves not to be satisfactory to the University. 

Dr. Gulko , UM/Amherst Budget Director, expressed concern 
about the proposed mechanism whereby UM/Amherst would be reimbursed 
for its loan. Following discussion and in accordance with a 
suggested change in the mechanism for repayment, it was moved, 
seconded and

Trustee Cagle inquired whether the presence of the bank

At the request of the Chairman, Chancellor Golino pre- 
sented two proposed Personnel Actions — UM/Boston, relative to his 
appointment of Dr. Robert H. Spaethling as Acting Vice Chancellor 
for Academic Affairs and Provost, and Dr. Robert J. Steamer as

determined by the Board of Trustees or under their 
authority. 

The Chairman then turned to Mr. O'Leary, Assistant General 
Counsel, for a discussion of the proposed Trustee Alcoholic Beverages 
Policy Statement (Doc. T74-080) ; and the proposed Alcoholic Beverages 
Rules and Regulations — UM/Amherst (Doc. T74-081A) . Mr. O'Leary 
stated that the general Trustee Policy Statement includes the pro- 
vision that each campus shall develop, for review and approval by 
the Board of Trustees, specific rules and regulations appropriate 
for that campus. Rules and regulations for UM/Amherst, he said, 
were first transmitted to the Executive Committee last summer, and 
had now been redrawn based on Trustee comments at that time. 
Mr. O'Leary stated that the rules and regulations now before the 
Committee had been approved by the appropriate campus constituencies; 
and Vice Chancellor Gage stated that the proposed document has his 
endorsement . 

Trustee Pumphret requested clarification of the intent of 
Section 5(e) of the proposed rules and regulations, asking whether 
it is the practice of the UM/Amherst administration to grant 
approval of license applications only to recognized student organi- 
zations, or if individual students may also receive such approval. 
Vice Chancellor Gage replied that approval of a license application 
will not be granted by the Chancellor or his designee in the 
absence of appropriate assurances that the license approval request 
is not for individually sponsored purposes. The ensuing discussion 
noted the need for making this more limited intent an explicit 
provision of the rules and regulations, and it was accordingly 
moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To delete Section 5(e) of Trustee Document 

T74-080, and to insert in its place the follow- 
ing new Section 5(e): 

"No student or organization shall apply for 
a license to sell alcoholic beverages unless the 
Responsible Officer designated by the Chancellor 
of the University under Section 8 of these regu- 
lations, shall first approve said application." 

Chairman Healey noted that the proposed rules and regula- 
tions are to apply not only to students at UM/Amherst, but to the 
entire campus community. Accordingly, he moved an amendment to the 
last paragraph of the Preface of Trustee Document T74-081, and being 
seconded, it was 

VOTED : To delete the last sentence of the last paragraph 
of the Preface of Trustee Document T74-081,

and 

VOTED : To adopt and approve the Rules and Regulations 
Relative to the Possession, Consumption, and

of Massachusetts at Amherst, as set forth in 
Document T74-081 as amended, which amended 
document is designated as Document T74-081A, 
and is attached hereto and made a part of this 
vote. 

Chairman Healey introduced discussion of the Proposed 
"Statement by the Board of Trustees of the University of Massachu- 
setts on Meeting the Needs for Veterinary Medicine Education in New 
England" by noting that it is essential to differentiate between 
"need" and "demand" in discussing a facility to provide education 
in veterinary medicine, and stated that the concept of "need" must 
take precedence. 

President Wood referred to a "Letter to the Editor" 
appearing in the Boston Globe of March 21, 1974, in which it was 
asserted that in the past the Trustees had voted unanimously in 
favor of such a facility at the University, and that Board of 
Trustee records would reveal that vote. He stated that on June 8, 
1946, the Trustees of the then Massachusetts State College had 
voted that they "be recorded in favor of the establishment of a 
School of Veterinary Medicine at the College, said School to be 
established when sufficient funds are available for staff, equip- 
ment and operation ..." (Minutes of the Meeting of the Trustees 
of Massachusetts State College, June 8, 1946, p. 1278);

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

and that on July 28, 1948, the Trustees had discussed such a School, 
and had retained a $2,500,000 item for such a School in the main- 
tenance budget request, noting that at the time the University of 
Connecticut was planning a School of Veterinary Medicine and that 
"... one such school is all that is needed in New England." 
(Minutes of the Meeting of the Trustees of Massachusetts State 
College, July 28, 1948, p. 1532). Following discussion, the Commit- 
tee endorsed the proposed Statement, with amendments, for trans- 
mission to and action by the Board of Trustees at the afternoon 
meeting. 

At the request of the Chairman, Mr. Kaplan, the Assistant 
to the President, spoke to the proposed Amendment of Trustee Vote 
of March 6, 1974, Relative to the Classification of Students for 
Tuition Purposes . He stated that a thirty-day extension of the 
filing date for change in tuition classification status by students 
was needed in order to provide students with more time for preparing 
the necessary application. It was accordingly moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that the time 
for filing applications for change in tuition 
classification for the Spring Semester, 1974, under 
the rules and regulations for the classification of 
students for tuition purposes (Trustee Document 
T74-037A, adopted March 6, 1974, effective 
January 1, 1974), be extended from April 15, 1974, 
to and including May 15, 1974. 

There being no further business to come before the Com- 
mittee, the meeting adjourned at 12:30 p.m.

MEETING OF TRUSTEE COMMITTEE ON BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS 

April 17, 1974; 9:00 a.m. 

Office of the President; University of Massachusetts 

One Washington Mall, Boston, Massachusetts 



PRESENT: Trustees and Trustee Staff : Chairman Knowles, President 
Wood; Trustees Cagle, Pumphret; Dr. Bloomberg, repre- 
senting Commissioner Goldman; Treasurer Johnson, 
Secretary Patterson, Miss Eichel 

Office of the President : Vice President Robinson 

UM/Amherst : Mr. Littlef ield, Prof. Progulske 

UM/Boston : Chancellor Golino, Mr. Rawn 

UM/Worcester : Chancellor Soutter, Mr. Roth 



The meeting was called to order at 9:10 a.m. by Chairman 
Knowles, who asked President Wood for his comments on the agenda. 
He stated that many of the agenda items were in the nature of a 
review of progress on the campuses of the University and were 
included to bring the Committee up to date on matters which it had 
discussed or voted upon since last summer. 

President Wood then reviewed the capital outlay program, 
stating that if cuts proposed by various State agencies are 
voted by the Legislature, priorities for construction on the 
campuses will be seriously affected. The President said that, at 
the request of Chancellor Soutter and with the help of Treasurer 
Johnson, the University and the Bureau of Building Construction 
had reviewed the items necessary at UM/Worcester. This review 
included problems from excessive vibration in the power plant 
boilers through the proposed parking garage. President Wood said 
that the University is working to get capital funds for Phase II 
at UM/Boston. He noted that a reduction in parking capacity, 
which would entail a major redesign in future buildings, may be 
required because of environmental impact considerations. 

At the request of Chairman Knowles, Chancellor Soutter 
reported on progress at UM/Worcester. Chancellor Soutter said 
that an engineering expert from the faculty of Tufts University 
had been employed to study the problem of vibration in the boilers, 
but that his report had not yet been received. The Chancellor 
informed the Committee that there had been change-orders in con- 
struction at the hospital amounting to a considerable sum, which 
appear to be the result of mistakes in engineering, and that the

COMMITTEE 



I

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

University should not be expected to pay for architectural or 
engineering errors. The approved design for the courtyard has gone 
to the contractor for cost estimates. With regard to site develo- 
ment , Chancellor Soutter indicated that money is available for 
completing the parking lots, but that there is no money for land- 
scaping, lighting, curbing, etc. He said that plans are being 
developed for student housing, but that these plans have not yet 
been submitted to the President's Office. The farmhouse on 
Plantation Street will be available in August and could be ready at 
minimal expense for the housing of 36 students by early September. 
There is also a possibility of obtaining space in the nurses' 
residence connected with the State Hospital, but this has not as 
yet been approved by the Commissioner of Mental Health. 

Trustee Pumphret expressed the hope that before the 
Committee was requested to act on student housing, the costs of 
the various alternatives would be available, which Chancellor 
Soutter assured him would be the case. Chairman Knowles and Mr. 
Roth informed the Committee that the redesign for the courtyard 
would not result in additional cost to the University. 

Trustee Pumphret, at the request of Chancellor Soutter, 
reviewed for the Committee the various concerns to be faced before 
a commitment is made to build a parking garage at UM/Worcester , 
such as the ratio of cost to expected income, the practices of 
other hospitals in the Worcester area with regard to parking fees, 
anticipated use of the garage and the possibility of using some of 
the space for other activities. Trustee Pumphret said that the 
firm of Kallmann & McKinnell had been selected from eleven 
qualified architectural concerns to do the feasibility study for 
the proposed garage and that they had retained Edison Parking 
Systems as a consultant. Mr. Roth stated that he concurred with 
the Bureau of Building Construction in its choice of architect. 

Mr. Roth expressed concern that as yet no one has been 
selected by the Bureau of Building Construction to work on the 
interior design of the hospital. 

Chairman Knowles asked Chancellor Golino to report on 
progress at UM/Boston, and to review the status of Phase I con- 
struction, which is nearly completed. The Chancellor stated that 
the landscaping is underway and will add much to the appearance of 
the campus. He said that Phase II and Phase lib construction will 
depend on the availability of funds and that the future of 
College IV is dependent upon the receipt of these funds. It has 
been determined that no additional biology laboratories are 
required in Building 030. 

Based on new environmental protection standards, Secretary 
of Transportation Altshuler has requested a substantial reduction 
in the total parking spaces to be provided at UM/Boston, Chancellor 
Golino observed that a reduction of one level in a building would

not create serious problems, but the removal of a second level 
would create very difficult problems of redesign. 

Assistant Chancellor Rawn reported that the new regula- 
tions require that the ratio between parking spaces and people be 
reduced by 25 percent. Mr. Rawn said that the campus administra- 
tion agrees that a reduction in parking spaces is desirable, but 
would like to effect this change primarily by reductions in 
Phase lib and Phase III construction to avoid redesign in Phase II 
and to allow the later buildings to relate more closely to the 
shoreline. 

With regard to the shuttle bus system, Mr. Rawn reported 
that it is so successful that fewer automobiles are being driven 
to the campus than was anticipated, which means that less parking 
income is being realized to support the free bus service. Trustee 

Pumphret stated that since it was the purpose of the shuttle 
bus service to curtail the number of automobiles coming into the 
community, some way must be found to make up the deficit from other 
sources. It was also suggested that some of the excess parking 
space could be converted temporarily into other use, such as 
storage of supplies. 

With further reference to the landscaping mentioned by 
Chancellor Golino, Mr. Rawn observed that this is the largest 
landscaping project undertaken in the Commonwealth, and that the 
campus is grateful to Chairman Knowles for her suggestions on the 
seawall, which have enhanced the beauty of this project. Ninety 
percent of the landscaping is expected to be completed by May 1. 

Chairman Knowles asked Mr. Rawn to report further on the 
utilization of parking spaces at the next meeting of the Committee. 

Chairman Knowles then recognized Professor Donald Pro- 
gulske, head of the Department of Forestry and Wildlife Management 
at UM/Amherst, and asked him to review for the Committee policy 
proposals for the use and management of forest lands owned by the 
University. Professor Progulske explained that these forests are 
used for research and experimentation by the Department of Forestry 
and Wildlife Management and that both students and the public also 
make use of the forests for recreational purposes. He said that 
a policy was needed in order to protect both the public and the 
experiments and to enable University security personnel to enforce 
regulations. Vice President Robinson said that the General Counsel 
was reviewing the question of delegation, and that a proposed vote 
would be ready for the Committee at its May meeting. 

With regard to the microwave repeater which the Commit- 
tee had voted to allow the FAA to construct on University property 
on Mt . Toby, Professor Progulske stated that no action had been 
taken on this project to date since a base had not yet been 
established by the FAA in Cummington.

Treasurer Johnson introduced the Proposed Agreement 
between the Department of Veterinary & Animal Sciences, UM/Amherst , 
and Stanley Bohonowicz, South Deerfield (Doc. T74-086) , stating that 
this land is used to raise corn and hay for animals at the South 
Deerfield facilities. 

Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that the 

Treasurer of the University, Kenneth W. Johnson, 
be authorized to execute Agreements from time to 
time whereby the Department of Veterinary & 
Animal Sciences of the University of Massachu- 
setts, Amherst, for a nominal consideration, may 
cultivate certain crops on lands of Stanley 
Bohonowicz in South Deerfield, Franklin County, 
Massachusetts for the use and benefit of the 
University. 

Chairman Knowles asked Mr. Jack Littlefield, Director of 
Planning for UM/Amherst, to report on the progress of the trans- 
portation and parking system and on the progress of the Fine Arts 
Center. Mr. Littlefield informed the Committee that construction 
of the Fine Arts Center is nearly completed. Occupancy can take 
place during the summer if an exemption from the sewage ban is 
obtained. Equipment orders have been placed. Lighting is in final 
design stage, and acoustical and sight-line problems are under study 
Mr. Littlefield also reported briefly on the progress of the power 
plant, the infirmary, the modular housing and the fire loss at 
Tobin Hall. 

He then turned to the operation of the parking and trans- 
portation plan. He said that with the exception of one lot, there 
have been no complaints from people who could not find parking 
space. He stated that there is need for backup service for the 
buses. Mr. Littlefield said it is hoped that the parking and trans- 
portation system will make it possible to achieve the goal of a 
pedestrian campus by the end of five years. 

Replying to a question from Secretary Patterson with 
regard to the Fine Arts Center, Mr. Littlefield stated that the 
dedication of the building should not take place until the fall of 
1975, since it would take until then to adjust and refine the 
various systems in the building, such as heating, ventilation, 
air conditioning, etc. 

Chairman Knowles then turned to the question of policy 
and procedure for naming of buildings, and reviewed for the Commit- 
tee the guidelines that had been established by the Committee at a 
recent meeting. A discussion ensued with regard to the policy of 
using generic names for certain types of buildings, with particular 
reference to the University Library and the Fine Arts Center at

UM/ Amherst , and the teaching hospital and the medical science 
building at UM/Worcester . Vice President Robinson commented that 
it had not been the policy of the University to give names to the 
various schools and colleges, but only to buildings. In the case 
of the medical science building, it might not be wise to name this 
structure "University Medical School" since it is possible that 
other programs might eventually be located in the building. Dr. 
Bloomberg said that he did not see that naming the library, the 
fine arts center or the hospital by other than generic names would 
obscure the purposes for which the buildings were intended. 
Mr. Littlefield pointed out that the Trustees had already acted in 
1968 naming the UM/ Amherst library "University Library" and the 
fine arts building "Fine Arts Center." 

It was the consensus of the Committee that no formal 
procedure for soliciting names for buildings should be determined 
until the Chancellors could be present to present their views in 
this matter. 

There being no further business to come before the 
Committee, the meeting adjourned at 11:48 a.m.

The meeting was called to order at 3:35 p.m. by Chairman 
Pumphret. At the request of Chairman Pumphret, President Wood 
introduced the subject of the Teaching Hospital budget and reminded 
the Committee that at the time the FY 1975 Maintenance Budget Request 
was approved by the Board of Trustees, in October 1973, an informa- 
tional copy of the budget for the Teaching Hospital at UM/Worcester 
was included, with an indication that a request for funds would be 
submitted at a later date, pending a review of construction sched- 
ules. President Wood indicated that since construction of the 
hospital is ahead of schedule, a budget request will be necessary 
before the beginning of the 1975 fiscal year. He called the Commit- 
tee's attention to the Fiscal Year 1975 Budget Request for the 
Teaching Hospital (Doc. T74-085) , which had been circulated to the 
members of the Committee prior to the meeting and asked Mr. John 
Stockwell, Hospital Director, to review with the Committee this 
budget document. 

Mr. Stockwell informed the Committee of the most recent 
set of construction estimates for completing various phases of the 
hospital. According to the estimates, floors are scheduled to be

schedule of opening to the fiscal requirements outlined in the FY 
1975 request. In addition, Mr. Stockwell related the opening 
schedule to other activities which were proceeding at the same 
time which were also necessary for the opening of the hospital. 

Chairman Pumphret raised a number of questions concerning 
specific elements of the request and the manner in which the 
information was presented. These questions included the following: 

First, the status of current planning in relation to the 
issue of lease versus purchase of specific types of equipment. 
Mr. Stockwell informed the Committee that bids were out on certain 
specific pieces of equipment; however, a final decision had not 
yet been made for major acquisitions. 

Second, Chairman Pumphret suggested that reimbursable 
expenses should be clearly noted as such in the budget and that 
portions of the narrative statement in the budget should be amended 
for the purpose of clarity. He suggested that nonrecurring 
expenses resulting from the opening of the hospital should be 
clearly indicated and separated from those expenses which will be 
recurring as a result of the continued operation of the hospital. 

Third, there was discussion of the appointment of 
residents and the opening of the inpatient and outpatient depart- 
ments of the hospital. 

After further discussion of specific items in the budget, 
it was the consensus of the Committee that with the modifications 
previously mentioned for the purpose of clarity the budget for the 
Teaching Hospital was well presented. These modifications are to 
be made in the budget which will be presented to the Trustees in 
May. Dr. Gartenberg suggested that a brief summary accompany the 
budget document, and Vice President Lynton requested that a 
graphic presentation be made to the Board of Trustees. 

There being no further discussion, the meeting adjourned 
at 5:00 p.m.

The meeting was called to order by Chairman Rowland at 



1:00 p .m. 



Chairman Rowland noted her receipt of a letter dated 
April 12, 1974, from Dr. Joseph M. Cronin, Secretary of Educational 
Affairs, enclosing a summary of his remarks to the House Ways and 
Means Committee on budget. Secretary Cronin had indicated that his 
analysis of current changes in enrollment patterns is very much in 
line with Mr. Cooley 's presentation made at the February meeting of 
the Committee. After a brief discussion of the letter and 
enclosure, Trustee Rowland indicated that she would reply to 
Secretary Cronin at an early date. 

Chairman F.owland then invited President Wood to comment 
on recent developments in the University relevant to the Committee's 
work. In response, President Wood noted that the Multi-Campus 
Planning Committee had now had three meetings, that it soon would 
meet with the Multi-Campus Budget Committee, and that it was his 
hope both Committees may move promptly towards further clarifica- 
tion of their appropriate roles. President Wood reported that Vice 
President Lynton and the Chancellors had completed a review of 
tenure recommendations for the present spring, that recommendations 
would be considered by the Committee on Faculty and Educational 
Policy on April 24 for subsequent action by the Board on May 1, 
and that a firm schedule will be initiated this June to regularize 
tenure review for the academic year 1974-75 and thereafter. The 
President noted receipt of the interim report of the New Directions 
Committee of UM/Boston, and said that a final report is still some 
months away. In this connection, President Wood stated his hope

that the Long-Range Planning Committee would consider drafting a 
Trustee statement with regard to options and alternatives in the 
future development of UM/Boston for consideration by the Board at 
its June 1974 meeting. He also commented that Dr. Kenneth Cris- 
pell has accepted chairmanship of the Visiting Committee to the 
University of Massachusetts Medical School, beginning in June. 

Chairman Rowland asked about progress in organizing the 
University Advisory Council on the Fine Arts. Vice President 
Lynton indicated that progress is being made towards the selection 
of a suitable chairman. Chairman Rowland said that the President 
would make appointments to the Council, and that she hoped to have 
an opportunity to advise on these choices. She then introduced the 
subject of alternative enrollment patterns for the Boston Harbor 
Campus, and asked Vice President Robinson, Chancellor Golino, and 
Mr. Cooley to begin discussion. 

Vice President Robinson began by noting that projections 
developed by Mr. Cooley are illustrative and intended to pose 
alternatives for discussion purposes. She said that enrollments 
and space planning have been closely tied together at UM/Boston, 
using a 200 gross square foot /student formula developed by Mr. 
Littlefield of UM/Amherst and accepted by the Legislature in 
determining appropriations. Present construction and future space 
needs, therefore, place constraints on changing enrollment goals. 
She noted further that the projections highlight two important 
points: the possibility of a goal or ceiling somewhere between 
10,000 and 12,500 students, and the effect of an extended class 
schedule on campus capacity. 

Vice President Robinson then asked Mr. Cooley to review 
with the Committee possible alternative enrollment patterns for 
the Boston Harbor Campus. Mr. Cooley noted the 1972 action of 
the Board of Trustees reducing the original enrollment goal of 
15,000 to 12,500. He said that several continuing trends support 
this reduction. These include a projected decline in the number of 
future high school graduates, a small decline in the overall 
college-going rate, a decline in the student demand for graduate 
education in the traditional disciplines, and the high cost of 
graduate education in a time of fiscal constraint. He said that 
while an enrollment goal is a helpful parameter, it requires 
further definition before it can be translated into enrollment and 
space planning. Some of the issues which must be considered are 
these: 

In establishing enrollment goals, is the unit of 
measurement head count or FTE? 

What student groups (undergraduate, graduate, 
precollege, day, evening, full-time, part-time) 
are to be included within the ceiling? 



I:

COMMITTEE 



I

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



What will be the lower division/upper division, under- 
graduate/graduate, full-time/part-time mix? 

Will the University offer a full set of undergraduate 
and graduate programs for part-time and evening students? 

How will part-time and evening study be financed? 

Will broad but nevertheless fully-articulated programs 
be available for A. A. and A. S. degree students? 

Having noted these variables, Mr. Cooley then reviewed 
five tables depicting possible alternative enrollment patterns and 
incorporating consideration of some of the issues noted above. 

There followed active discussion in which all members of 
the Committee took part. It was strongly suggested that enrollment 
planning take into consideration the definition of educational pro- 
grams, and estimated demand for them, rather than assuming a 
ceiling. President Wood commented that differential demand analysis 
was indeed an important factor to be considered in campus planning. 
It was emphasized in further discussion that, in its central 
mission, UM/Boston should have an enrollment pattern which would 
help assure access to university-level education for urban students 
who might not otherwise be so served. Maximum utilization of 
present and future capacity was urged. Other factors touched upon 
in Committee discussion included the place of part-time students in 
future programming, the nature of the rate of application for 
admission to UM/Boston, the probable size of the pool of candidates 
for admission to the College of Public and Community Service, the 
effect of urban student enrollment upon graduate program develop- 
ment, the effect of alternative enrollment patterns on physical 
plant planning and development, and other matters. 

The Committee agreed that a policy statement with regard 
to UM/Boston enrollment planning should be developed for considera- 
tion at the June meeting of the Board of Trustees. 

There being no other business to come before the Commit- 
tee, the meeting was adjourned at 3:00 p.m.

Chairman Troy next introduced the proposed Campus Tenure 
Recommendations, UM/Amherst and UM/Boston (Doc. T74-096 and Doc. 
T74-097). The Chairman began the discussion by noting the univer- 
sality of tenure concerns, and observed that marked recent progress 
has been made at the University in delineating the policies and 
procedures whereby tenure is awarded. He expressed the hope and 
expectation that in the coming year continued progress will be made 
in carefully systematizing the tenure planning and granting proce- 
dures at every level in the University, and emphasized the need to 
begin early in each academic year the assessment of candidates for 
tenure, as well as earlier communication with faculty members con- 
cerning the status of their progress toward tenure. 

President Wood stated that the tenure documents and 
analyses before the Committee reflected great credit upon the work 
of Vice Chancellors Gluckstern and Spaethling and Vice President 
Lynton, and noted that this is the first review of tenure recom- 
mendations to have been considered under the provisions of the 
Trustee Statement on University Governance, and that it marked the 
beginnings of a systematic procedure for determining tenure awards. 

Vice President Lynton discussed the process by which the 
tenure recommendations had come to the Committee, noting that this 
has been a transitional year, concerning both administrative and 
staffing arrangements at UM/Boston and in the President's Office 
and improved liaison between the campuses and the President's 
Office. Partly for this latter reason, he stated, the President had 
decided not to exercise the prerogative of taking any negative 
actions on the recommendations forwarded by the campuses. 

Dr. Lynton noted that a small number of departments at 
the Amherst and Boston campuses are now approaching a fully tenured 
status, and that this has implications for the futures of those 
departments which must be addressed fully. He also expressed his 
wish that the results of Affirmative Action efforts had been more 
positive, particularly at the Amherst campus where 14 out of 80 
recommendations were for women or minority group members, compared 
with 10 out of 30 from UM/Boston. 

Among general and related issues which he has discussed 
with campus personnel and which must receive continued attention in 
the coming months, Vice President Lynton cited: (1) the award of 
tenure without accompanying promotion, when consistency would 
suggest that if there is sufficient achievement and promise to 
warrant the granting of tenure, there should be sufficient achieve- 
ment and promise to warrant promotion; (2) the need for a thorough 
review of reappointments at the level of assistant professor prior 
to the year of decision for the awarding of tenure; (3) careful 
review of prior service in reaching tenure decisions; and (4) the 
situation of people who are essentially viewed as career instructors 
or career assistant professors, which tends to develop a kind of 
second-class citizenship among the faculty.

COMMITTEE 



Additional issues requiring attention, as identified by- 
Vice President Lynton, are: (1) appropriate evaluation for tenure 
in cases where an individual has moved into an administrative 
position after only a few years as a faculty member, where an 
option might be to postpone the tenure decision year, thereby 
neither evaluating the administrative experience as a basis for 
tenure nor penalizing a faculty member for assuming administra- 
tive duties; and (2) the definition and standards of service, where 
there is often confusion among service on routine standing commit- 
tees, special committee assignments requiring an unusual amount of 
time and effort, and exemplary public service above the normal 
off-campus responsibilities of a faculty member. Dr. Lynton stated 
that there is a need to give greater attention to the last two 
types of service, noting that a normal amount of campus committee 
work should not be considered as meritorious performance. 

At the request of the Chairman, Vice Chancellors Gluck- 
stern and Spaethling outlined the internal procedures for review 
and evaluation of tenure recommendation at their respective 
campuses. Chancellor Golino, commenting on the procedure at 
UM/Boston, cited the need on that campus for greater clarity of 
tenure standards and of the tenure granting process. In this con- 
nection, Acting Vice Chancellor Spaethling noted that he has begun 
to establish workshops for department chairmen and members of 
personnel committees, in order to effect this clarification. 

Upon the completion of the campus presentations, and 
with the consent of the members, the Commitee went into executive 
session to receive and discuss comments by Trustees on individual 
tenure recommendations. Following the executive session, upon 
motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that it 

concur with the appointments to tenure proposed 
by the President of the University and contained 
in Documents T74-096 and T74-097 . 



UM/Amherst —

Dolbeare 
(Doc. T74-089) 



The Chairman next addressed a proposed Of fer_ of Employ- 
ment with Tenure to Kenneth M. Dolbeare, UM/Amherst (Doc. T74-089) . 
Vice Chancellor Gluckstern noted that Professor Dolbeare holds 
a law degree as well as a doctorate in political science, and 
would make a most important contribution to the anticipated 
program in law and society. The fact that Professor Dolbeare 
would replace a retiring tenured senior faculty member was noted 
by Vice President Lynton who stated that the proposed action 
carried the enthusiastic endorsement of President Wood and himself 



It was accordingly moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that the 
Chancellor, UM/Amherst, or his designee, be 
authorized to extend an offer of employment to

setts at Amherst, effective September 1, 1974. 

Chairman Troy then turned to the proposed Offer of Employ- 
ment with Tenure to James E. Humphreys, UM/Amherst (Doc. T74-090) . 



In endorsing this action, Vice Chancellor Gluckstern stated that 
Professor Humphreys's specialization is in the field of algebra, 
and that his appointment would fill an important need in the Depart- 
ment of Mathematics and Statistics. Upon motion made and seconded, 
it was then 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that the 
Chancellor, UM/Amherst, or his designee, be 
authorized to extend an offer of employment to 
James E. Humphreys as Associate Professor of 
Mathematics and Statistics with Tenure, Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts at Amherst, effective 
September 1, 1974. 

A proposal for the establishment of a Western European 
Area Studies Program, UM/Amherst (Doc. T74-087), was then taken up 
by the Chairman and discussed by Vice Chancellor Gluckstern. The 
program represents a result of continued inter-disciplinary contacts 
between academic departments and was presented as an activity 
similar to existing area concentrations in Asian Studies and Latin 
American Studies. A motion being made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that it 

approve the establishment of a Western European 
Area Studies Program leading to a Certificate 
in Western Studies, University of Massachusetts 
at Amherst, as contained in Trustee Document 
T74-087. 

The Chairman addressed the requested action to establish 
a Five-College Major in Black Studies, UM/Amherst (Doc. T74-088) . 
Vice Chancellor Gluckstern stated that for UM/Amherst the proposed 
program would essentially represent a replacement of the existing 
major in Afro-American Studies and that beyond the formal involvement 
of faculty members from the other four institutions of the consortium^ 
would result in little change in such studies at the Amherst campus. 
It was accordingly moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that it 

approve the establishment of a Five-College Black 
Studies Major for the University of Massachusetts 
at Amherst, as contained in Trustee Document T74- 
088. Implementation of this program is to be con- 
tingent upon the program being approved by the 
Presidents of the other four institutions of Five- 
Colleges, Incorporated. Upon such approval, the

A Two-Year Pilot Program in Women's Studies, UM/Amherst 
(Doc. T74-093), was then taken up by Chairman Troy. As discussed 
by Vice Chancellor Gluckstern, the proposed pilot program origi- 
nated with the interests expressed by a number of women faculty 
members, and would be an interdisciplinary clustering of courses 
with a particular focus on aspects of issues and concerns relating 
to women in past and present societies. It was noted that the 
program would have strong Five-College ties and benefits, and 
that while a separate department for women's studies is not now 
contemplated, a recommendation for the establishment of a major 
might be an appropriate step at a later date. Upon motion made 
and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that it 
approve the establishment of a two-year pilot 
program in Women's Studies, University of Massa- 
chusetts at Amherst, as contained in Trustee 
Document T74-093. 

Two similar proposed actions to effect the Transfer of 
the Computer and Information Science Program and the Polymer 
Science and Engineering Program from the Graduate School to the 
Faculty of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, with Granting of 
Departmental Status, UM/Amherst (Doc. T74-094) , were then con- 
sidered by Chairman Troy. Vice Chancellor Gluckstern explained 
that in the early developmental stages of these programs, their 
being housed within the Graduate School was appropriate. More 
recently, however, the faculty members involved have been exploring 
alternative arrangements for affiliation within the institution, 
and the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Mathematics had been 
selected as logical and proper. Chairman Troy and Vice Chancellor 
Gluckstern clarified that no additional costs would result from 
these transfers and changes in status; and Vice President Lynton 
noted that placing programs within a specific department or 
faculty typically improves budgetary control. It was accordingly 
moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that it 

approve the transfer of the Computer and Informa- 
tion Science Program from the Graduate School to 
the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, 
with granting of departmental status, University

At the request of the Chairman, and with the consent of

UM/Amherst, with no final action being voted.

The meeting was called to order at 12:00 noon by 
Chairman Troy. 

The Chairman presented for Committee consideration a 
proposed Vote relative to approval of the Graduation Lists, Spring 
1974, UM/Amherst, UM/Boston, and UM/Worcester . He pointed out to 
the Committee that because the academic term is not yet completed, 
the final graduation lists cannot now be brought before the Commit- 
tee and Board. However, because the June meeting of the Board is 
no longer held in conjunction with the commencement exercises at 
UM/Amherst, approval of the Spring graduation lists is to be 
requested at the May meeting of the Board in order that degrees may 
be awarded at the three campuses during the ceremonies scheduled 
for late May and early June. Chairman Troy stated that the Vote 
prepared for Committee and Board consideration took these factors 
into account, and make implementation of the Vote contingent upon 
appropriate campus requirements being met. It was accordingly 
moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that it 

approve the undergraduate, graduate, and Division 
of Continuing Education degrees to be awarded by 
UM/Amherst on June 1, 1974, by the Stockbridge 
School of Agriculture at UM/Amherst on May 31, 1974, 
by UM/Boston on June 6, 1974, and by UM/Worcester 
on May 25, 1974, subject to the completion of 
course and other requirements and final certifica- 
tion by the Registrar at each campus. 

There being no further business to come before the Com- 
mittee, the meeting adjourned at 12:10 p.m.

UM/Worcester : Chancellor Soutter 



The meeting was called to order at 12:10 p.m. by Chair- 
man Healey. 

The Chairman first addressed the need for clarification 
of the administrative relationship between the General Counsel of 
the University in the Office of the President, and any other legal 
counsel that may from time to time be retained by the University, 
including the three campuses. Discussion noted the need for a more 
clear and direct line of authority, and upon motion made and 
seconded, it was accordingly 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that any 
legal counsel retained by the University on a 
permanent, temporary, or consultant basis shall 
be first approved by, and subject to the continu- 
ing supervision of, the General Counsel of the 
University, and that all prior votes concerning 
the hiring of legal counsel be and hereby are 
rescinded. 

Chairman Healey then requested Committee approval of a 
Personnel Action, UM/Worcester , relative to a change of title and 
salary adjustment appropriate to the promotion of Dr. Neal C. Brown 
to Professor of Pharmacology with Tenure and his designation as 
Chairman of the Department of Pharmacology. The Committee on 
Faculty and Educational Policy had earlier approved these two 
actions from the academic standpoint, and approval of the concom- 
mitant personnel action was now brought before the Executive Com- 
mittee.

After introductions, Chairman Healey invited Mr. Guscott 
to present comments. Mr. Guscott summarized and explained for the 
Executive Committee the contents of a memorandum prepared by him on 
behalf of the New England Conference of NAACP for presentation at 
this meeting. A copy of this memorandum is attached to these 
minutes . 

Following Mr. Guscott 's presentation, he invited Dr. David 
French, Dr. Hugh Smith, and other representatives of the NAACP to 
add their views and comments. The discussion presented by NAACP 
delegates reasserted and explicated the points made under "Back- 
ground," "Recommendations," and "Alternative Action" in the attached 
memorandum. 

During these presentations and afterward, each of the 
Trustees present raised questions and contributed information with 
regard to the policy of the Board of Trustees in connection with 
Affirmative Action both at the University of Massachusetts Medical 
School and at the Amherst and Boston campuses of the University. 
The spirit of discussion was constructive and led to a consensus 
that cooperative communication between University administration 
and the New England Conference of the NAACP would be desirable in 
furthering Affirmative Action with regard to black students and 
black faculty members at the Medical School. Chairman Healey 
stated the strong commitment of the Trustees to implementation of 
presently adopted Board policies on Affirmative Action, with

particular reference in this instance to the Medical School. He 
indicated the Board's expectation that such implementation would 
be accomplished under the direction of the President with the 
cooperation of Medical School leadership. The Chairman expressed 
his appreciation to Mr. Guscott and his associates for their 
assistance, and said that the Trustees would welcome further con- 
sultation if it appears necessary in the future. 



Portions of the discussion conducted over a period of two 
hours are attached to these Minutes, reflecting some of the inter- 
change that took place. 

The meeting was adjourned at 12:30 p.m. followed by

The meeting was called to order at 10:40 a.m. by Budget 
Committee Chairman Pumphret. The Chairman first addressed the FY 
1974 Revised Operating Budget Allocations for the three campuses 
(Doc. T74-101) . He stated that for UM/Boston, the requested budget 
transfers totaled $298,000, of which $200,000 is needed for the 08 
account in order to meet utility cost increases, which have been 
nearly 400 percent higher than the amount originally budgeted. 
There is, he noted, no change in the total budget for the campus.

President Wood reminded the Committee that he had written 
to the Chairman of the Committee on Ways and Means of the House 
of Representatives informing him that his Committee would be 
notified of Trustee Committee budget transfer recommendations prior 
to action by the full Board. 

Budget transfers totaling $432,904 for UM/Worcester were 
presented by Chairman Pumphret, who remarked that $352,506 of that 
total is needed to meet utility cost increases. Chancellor Soutter 
noted that more than half of the $37,500 to be transferred into 
the 02 account is required to meet a retroactive salary increase 
mandated by the State Bureau of Personnel for power plant engineers. 

Mrs. Hanson, Assistant Director of the Office of the

subject to final action by the full Board on June 5. Chairman 
Pumphret stated that this is an appropriate procedure to follow. 

For UM/Amherst, the requested transfers total $345,800, 
which represents less than one percent of the total campus 
budget. A motion being made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that it 
approve the requested revisions to the FY 1974 
Operating Budget for UM/Amherst, UM/Boston, 
and UM/Worcester , as contained in Trustee 
Document T74-101. 

The matter of the need for a continuing resolution 
authorizing FY 1975 expenditures prior to adoption of the Operating

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that the 
President be authorized to approve the expendi- 
ture of State and non-state funds by the three 
campuses, the Office of the President, and the 
Institute for Governmental Services from July 1,

adopts the Operating Budget for FY 1975. 

The approval of expenditure of State funds shall 
be consistent with the appropriate State statutes 
governing the FY 1975 appropriation. 

The approval of expenditure of non-state funds 
shall be consistent with the general policies 
established by the Board of Trustees governing 
these funds. 

Finance Committee Chairman Gordon then presented for 
discussion the FY 1975 Fee-Based Budget, UM/Amherst (Doc. T74-095) . 
Dr. Gulko , Budget Director at UM/Amherst, distributed copies of an

Action that was to have been proposed affecting the Com- 
mencement Trust Fund and the Career Planning and Development Trust 
Fund was postponed, pending revision, for presentation at a meeting 
of the Finance Committee to be called for June 5, 1974. Discussion 
then turned briefly to the uses of the Murray D. and Anne H. Lincoln 
Endowment Fund, which Treasurer Johnson reviewed. 

Chairman Gordon mentioned the University of Massachusetts 
Endowment Fund — Portfolio Analysis as of April 5, 1974 (Doc. T74- 
100), which had been distributed to the Committee on Finance. 

A further matter discussed related to student health 
insurance plans. Chairman Gordon introduced Mr. Joseph H. Albert 
of Needham Heights, Massachusetts, who had, at Treasurer Johnson's 
request, been involved in the design and bidding of such a plan. 
Treasurer Johnson called Trustee attention to Mr. Albert's letter 
to him dated May 18, 1974, dealing with the general subject and 
submitting a specific recommended plan for student health insurance 
coverage. Mr. Albert commented on rising health insurance fees 
and health care costs and emphasized the institutional need to 
attempt to control insurance costs while still providing adequate 
levels of coverage. Treasurer Johnson summarized that the Albert 
proposal appeared both to expand coverage and to do so at some 
reduction in cost. While it appeared that a consensus favored the 
Albert proposal, Chairman Gordon concluded the discussion without 
asking for action but indicating that, after further consideration, 
a Committee recommendation would be required for Board action. 

There being no further business to come before the Joint 
Committees, the meeting was adjourned at 12:30 p.m.

Rowland 



The Chairman reviewed her recent exchange of correspon- 
dence with Secretary Cronin regarding enrollment planning, and then 
asked Vice President Lynton to report on progress in formation of 
the Advisory Council on the Fine Arts. 

Dr. Lynton said that he had consulted with appropriate 
deans and department heads concerning the initial list of nominees, 
securing reactions and further suggestions. He observed that 
approximately fourteen nominees were now settled upon, with letters 
of invitation sent to them by the President, and that Professor 
James Ackerman of Harvard had agreed to serve as convener of an 
initial meeting this June, and as Chairman effective in academic 
year 1975-76. Professor Ackerman considers that the precise charge 
to the Council should be to provide the Trustees and the Univer- 
sity with an interim report one year from June 1974 and a full 
report in June 1976. The Chairman inquired whether John Hightower 
had been given due consideration as a nominee; Vice President 
Lynton replied in the affirmative but said that, in choosing among 
excellent people, emphasis was given to those who reside in Massa- 
chusetts. The Chairman stated that Agnes Mongan and Mrs. Bruce 
Crane should be considered for the position of interim Chairman of 
the Council. She said further that she hoped the final membership 
of the Council could be established for report to the Trustees at 
their regular meeting on June 5. 

At the Chairman's request, President Wood introduced a 
draft planning statement on UM/Boston development for consideration 
by the Committee. The President reviewed the Committee's work in 



I 



I 



COMMITTEE 



I 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

its initial year, noting its decision to focus on long-term plan- 
ning with reference to realities likely to be faced by each campus 
of the University. The Committee had agreed to begin by developing 
a planning statement with regard to enrollment patterns at UM/Boston 
which could receive Board consideration in June 1974. The President 
commented that the Committee's initial year was the University's 
first period of experience with the governance policy adopted by 
the Trustees in April, 1973. In the same period, under the gover- 
nance document, a Multi-Campus Planning Committee, advisory to the 
President, undertook to clarify its own mission, and at the Boston 
campus a Committee on New Directions was formed to prepare recom- 
mendations for future development. The President said that the 
Trustee Committee's draft statement was being formulated in a pro- 
cess which sought to take account of campus and University-wide 
considerations, and that it was important for this process to con- 
clude with Trustee review and Board action in June. The Chairman 
concurred, stating that it was the desire of the Trustees to be 
able to determine policy on such matters. 

At the request of the Chairman, Chancellor Golino then 
commented on the draft statement before the Committee. He expressed 
reservations about its specificity, and said that he had some 
questions about its substance. He said that his main concern, how- 
ever, was with process which he believed should include Trustee 
Committee consideration of the final report of the campus New 
Directions Committee. President Wood said that he expected the New 
Directions report would be received in the near future and would be 
available to the Committee as it came to its own final draft for 
presentation to the Board on June 5. At the Chairman's suggestion, 
it was agreed to hold a one-hour meeting of the Committee at 11:00 
a.m. on June 5, to which other interested Trustees might come, and 
in which a final draft would be reviewed. 

The Committee then discussed the substance of the current 
version of the draft statement, particularly items 1-6 dealing with 
guidelines on the nature and timing of future enrollment growth at 
the Harbor Campus. Chancellor Golino questioned item 1 in terms 
of whether a 1980 enrollment target figure should be expressed as 
headcount or FTE (full-time equivalents) . He said that he had no 
quarrel with item 2, dealing with a mid-1980 's enrollment target; 
item 3, dealing with the proportion of part-time students; or item 
4, setting an approximate ratio of upper division students to lower 
division students. After discussion of item 5, establishing a 
target proportion of graduate students not to exceed 10-15% of the 
total number of students, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To retain this target figure as stated, for 
inclusion in the final document. 

After examination of item 6, dealing with scheduling and space 
planning so as to accommodate full anticipated enrollment in four 
college buildings, discussion of the draft statement concluded.

The Chairman indicated her expectation not to call meet- 
ings of the Committee in June, July, or August. It was agreed, 
however, that it would be desirable during that period for the 
President, the Vice President for Planning, and the Chancellor to 
work together in implementation of the policy adopted by the Board, 
with the Trustee Committee to be available for consultation during 
the summer if necessary. President Wood suggested that, in view 
of the work of the Medical School Visiting Committee, now beginning, 
and with results of the study of options in veterinary education 
soon to become available, it would be desirable for the Committee 
to consider matters relative to long-range planning at UM/Worcester 
in a September meeting. 

There being no further business to come before the 
Committee, the meeting was adjourned at 3:20 p.m.

Mr. O'Leary, Mr. Roth, Mr. Stephenson

The meeting was called to order at 10:10 a.m. by Chairman 
Knowles, who called to the attention of the Committee the proposed 
Policy Guidelines for Graduate Student Housing (Doc. T74-099) and 
asked Vice President Robinson to review for the Committee previous 
discussion which had lead to the development of these guidelines. 



Mrs. Robinson noted that at a meeting of the Committee 
at Worcester on July 16, 1973, a proposal for temporary student 
housing at UM/Worcester had been presented and at that time the 
consensus had been that no action be taken on the proposal for 
temporary housing until a long-range policy could be developed on 
the provision and financing of student housing. As a result, the 
Office of the Vice President for Planning developed and presented 
to the Committee on January 16, 1974, a report covering graduate 
student housing at UM/Amherst, recommendations on graduate student 
housing at UM/Worcester and suggested policy guidelines for all 
campuses. Although the report and recommendations were reviewed 
and accepted, formal adoption of the guidelines was postponed pend- 
ing further review by the Planning Office at UM/Amherst. Vice 
President Robinson said that campus review was satisfactorily com- 
pleted and that she suggested the Committee recommend to the Board 
of Trustees that it adopt the guidelines set forth in Doc. T74-099 

At the President's request, Trustee Pumphret reviewed 
for the Committee the history of graduate student housing as it 
had been developed at UM/Amherst, stating that he was in favor of 
acceptance of the proposed guidelines. After further brief 
discussion, upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that the

housing be adopted for the University: 

(1) that the University will provide con-

in finding suitable private housing which 
is reasonably accessible to academic 
facilities ; 

(2) that the University will seek to 
identify and encourage as diverse as 
possible a range of housing opportunities 
for graduate students, including small 
and large units, housekeeping rooms, 
apartments, co-ops, etc; 

(3) that the University will undertake 
to construct or develop dormitory or 
apartment units for graduate students only 
if necessary (a) to avoid undue adverse 
impact on the existing housing supply in 
the area, or (b) to supply diversity that 
is otherwise unavailable; 

(4) that where University housing is 
provided, rental rates will be established 
to cover maintenance and operating costs 
as well as debt service; 

(5) that where University housing is pro- 
vided, the proportion of 10-20 percent of 
graduate students for whom housing is 
available at the Amherst campus will be 
viewed as a maximum; and 

(6) that where University housing is pro- 
vided, financial need will be considered 
in assignments.

At the request of Chairman Knowles, President Wood out- 
lined for the Committee the progress of capital outlay requests, 
emphasizing the importance of obtaining the necessary funds for 
the purchase of equipment for the teaching hospital at UM/ 
Worcester and for continuing construction at UM/Boston. Chancellor 
Soutter said that by the first of July people will be employed to 
work in the hospital, that two floors of the hospital will be 
available by the first of September, that five floors will be 
available by the first of February, and that it is possible that 
the entire hospital will be ready for occupancy by May of 1975.

Chairman Knowles next introduced the subject of Trustee 
parking procedures at the several campuses, on surface lots and in 
parking garages. A brief discussion of desirable and efficient 
methods of facilitating parking for Trustees ensued. 

Vice President Robinson brought to the attention of the 
Committee a proposed new design for University stationery, which 
incorporates the University logo. 

Chairman Knowles then turned to the proposed Trustee 
Policy Relative to the Management and Use of University Forests 
(Doc. T74-084A) , indicating that this document is a modification 
of the document presented at the April 17 meeting of the Committee. 
The changes from the original document were of a technical nature 
as recommended by University counsel and members of the Committee, 
and after a brief discussion, upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board of Trustees adopt 
the proposed "Trustee Policy Relative to the 
Management and Use of University Forests" as 
set forth in Document T74-084A, which document 
is attached hereto and made a part of this vote. 

At the request of Chairman Knowles, President Wood 
reviewed for the Committee the status of the program revisions 
for Building 120, the gymnasium, at UM/Boston. President Wood said 
that the gymnasium had originally been planned for a student 
enrollment of 15,000 and that the change in proposed total enroll- 
ment meant that plans for the gymnasium would also have to be 
altered. He also reminded the Committee that Secretary of Trans- 
portation Altshuler had asked that the number of parking spaces be 
reduced with resultant design changes. 

Chairman Knowles asked for a report on progress of the 
feasibility study for the parking garage at UM/Worcester and 
Trustee Pumphret reported that the Building Authority had met with 
Kallmann & McKinnell, Architects, and had requested budget costs 
from them and from their consultant, the Edison Parking Systems. 

Chairman Knowles introduced the proposed plan for housing 
at UM/Worcester as detailed in MAPLE COTTAGE, THE FARM HOUSE , 
Recommendations and Cost Estimates for Conversion to Student Use 
(Doc. T74-103) , indicating that this proposal was in conformity 
with the policy guidelines which the Committee had earlier recom- 
mended that the Board of Trustees adopt. Chancellor Soutter 
indicated strong support for the proposal, which was developed 
jointly by his staff and Mr. Stephenson of the President's Office. 
After brief discussion, upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that 

University housing (with preference given to 
students) be developed in two original buildings

of the architectural problems at the Fine Arts Center at UM/

pleased to present this item for approval, noting that the Search 
Committee had been quite demanding in drawing up a list of can- 
didates for the Deanship and that Dr. Freeland had emerged as the 
strongest because of his experience and knowledge of the University 
and of College IV in particular. President Wood concurred with the 
Chancellor in his positive impressions of Dr. Freeland. Upon 
motion made and seconded, it was

for Professor Levine was coming before the Committee at this late 
date due to initial procedural irregularities concerning the 
formation of the Personnel Committee of the Department of Compara- 
tive Literature which had reviewed Professor Levine ' s case. When 
these were reviewed and corrected, it was recommended that he be 
granted tenure. Vice Chancellor Gluckstern commented that Profes- 
sor Levine was an outstanding teacher with a productive and 
scholarly career ahead of him. It was, therefore, moved, seconded

excellent teaching and administrative ability. Upon motion made 
and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that the 
Chancellor, UM/Amherst, or his designee, be 
authorized to extend an offer of employment to 
John Palmer as Professor of Zoology with tenure, 
and as Chairman of the Department of Zoology, 
UM/Amherst, effective September 1, 1974. 

Vice Chancellor Gluckstern then informed the Committee 
that there have been a number of proposals in recent months for 
different combinations of majors within the College of Arts and 
Sciences. Therefore, Committee approval was being sought for 
approval of the Policy on Creation of Interdepartmental Majors 
in the College of Arts and Sciences, UM/Amherst (Doc. T74-104) . 
He assured the Committee that this would have no resource implica- 
tions, and that it would not lead to the creation of new depart- 
ments within the College. Dr. Lynton concurred and further noted 
that the program would be subject to careful campus and adminis- 
trative review. 

Further discussion ensued, during which it was established 
that Interdepartmental Majors would provide adequate preparation 
for students wishing to pursue graduate study and that the faculty 
advisors of the program would provide assistance to students in 
this area. In response to a question from the Chairman, Vice 
Chancellor Gluckstern stated that, as several interdepartmental 
majors have been approved by the appropriate campus constituencies, 
the program can be put into effect in the coming academic year if 
approved by the Board. Upon motion made and seconded, it was

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that it 
approve the procedures and guidelines for the 
creation of interdepartmental majors within 
the College of Arts and Sciences, UM/Amherst, 
as contained in Document T74-104. 

The Committee next addressed the Faculty Workload Guide - 
lines (Doc. T74-111) . Upon request of the Chairman, President 



Wood explained that in order to conform to statute presently being 
considered by the Legislature, it was necessary that he be 
authorized by the Board to formulate workload standards for instruc- 
tional faculty at the Amherst and Boston campuses. Vice President 
Lynton pointed out that these will be broad guidelines for faculty 
teaching workloads, subject to further study and possible revision. 
The necessity of having data on faculty workloads available in 
order to be responsive to outside inquiry was also noted. Upon 
motion made and seconded, therefore, it was 

VOTED ; To recommend to the Board of Trustees that the 
President be directed to issue guidelines for 
the average instructional workload of full-time 
faculty at the Amherst and Boston campuses, in 
conformance with statute. 

There being no further business to come before the 
Committee, the meeting was adjourned by the Chairman at 12:00 noon.

The meeting was called to order at 11:10 a.m. by 
Chairman Rowland. 

The Chairman noted that all Trustees had been invited 
to attend this meeting of the Long-Range Planning Committee so that 
they might participate in final review of a draft policy statement 
on enrollment planning for the Harbor Campus, UM/Boston, upon 
which members of the Committee would afterward vote, with recom- 
mendation to be made to the Board of Trustees in the afternoon 
meeting. The Chairman then asked President Wood for comments on 
the draft statement and other matters. 

The President briefly noted that the draft policy state- 
ment represented an important and timely accomplishment by the 
Committee during its first year and that it is a document of both 
internal and external significance. He noted the difficulties 
faced in the planning process due to the various calendars of the 
campuses, the Board of Trustees, the budget cycle and the Legisla- 
ture and said that he hoped it would become clear that initiatives 
on major policies will come from the Board of Trustees. 

The Chairman then asked Mr. Cooley to summarize back- 
ground information against which the draft was formulated and to 
define two terms used in the statement itself: "FTE" and "head- 
count." Mr. Cooley defined "FTE" (or "full-time equivalent") 



I 



COMMITTEE 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

as a budgetary term derived from student credit hours and "headcount" 
as meaning literally the number of students enrolled at an institu- 
tion without reference to credit hours, the amount of discrepancy 
between the two figures depending largely on the percentage of 
part-time students. He then went on to note several national 
patterns of demography and educational enrollment which suggest that 
institutional planning in higher education should be conservative. 
He listed a decline in elementary school enrollment, a decline in 
population growth rate, a decrease in the proportion of the 18-year- 
old cohort going on to higher education, a decrease in the propor- 
tion of students choosing liberal arts versus professional and voca- 
tional education, the rapid development of proprietary schools and 
the emergence of new methods of educational service delivery and 
educational finance. 

The Chairman then invited discussion of the draft state- 
ment, indicating that she regarded it as an important Trustee 
policy that would be reviewed from time to time as more information 
is developed in later years. President Wood emphasized that the 
numbers in the policy statement on enrollment planning were specifi- 
cally for the Harbor Campus and, therefore, had a direct relation- 
ship to capital outlay planning at that location. 

Chancellor Golino said he was pleased that the policy 
statement was not cast in concrete, and that he hoped the New 
Directions Committee Report expected in the fall of 1974 might be 
reviewed by the Committee in the context of this statement. The 
Chancellor said that he was concerned about the Committee's appli- 
cation of national trends to local trends and to the particular 
mission of UM/Boston, indicating that there is currently heavy 
pressure for more summer enrollment and an expected enrollment of 
6600 students in the fall of 1974. He is disturbed by the limit of 
12,500 headcount students in the mid-1980' s. 

Professor Brown spoke in support of Chancellor Golino 's 
statement, saying that he serves on the New Directions Committee 
which has assumed a ceiling of 12,500 FTE students, and which feels 
that a figure less than that would not allow the campus to fulfill 
its mission. 

The President observed that it is necessary for the Uni- 
versity to deal with developing realities in the total outside 
context, and that these indicate the appropriateness of a more 
conservative forward planning posture. 

Trustee Spiller commented that any long-range projections 
must be continually reviewed and revised, as it is nearly impos- 
sible to make long-range projections with accuracy. 

Trustee Robertson suggested that it is the responsibility 
of the University to serve the needs of the community, but that it 
should not try to recruit students.

Vice President Robinson noted that state trends are in 
line with national trends and suggest a more modest rate of growth 
and Mr. Callahan indicated his agreement with Mrs. Robinson, 
noting that K-12 projections for school enrollment in Massachu- 
setts coincide with national projections. 

Trustee Carlson emphasized that while enrollment projec- 
tions can and should be revised over time, capital outlay planning 
requires some firm estimates. 

Acting Vice Chancellor Spaethling questioned the head- 
count goal of 12,500 and asked whether previous enrollment goals 
had been based on headcount or FTE . Vice President Robinson 
replied that earlier projections for the Harbor Campus had not 
been explicit on this point. The Acting Vice Chancellor stated 
his belief that greater growth was needed than indicated in the 
draft statement. 

The President said that the draft policy should not be 
seen as pessimistic but realistic, and closely connected to main- 
taining the credibility of the University in the Boston area. 

After further discussion in which Trustee support for the 
draft statement was expressed, the Chairman asked the members of 
the Committee on Long-Range Planning to vote on the Policy State - 
ment on Enrollment Planning, Harbor Campus, UM/Boston . It was 
moved, seconded, and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board of Trustees hereby 
adopt and direct the President and Chancellor 
to implement, in consultation with the Long- 
Range Planning Committee of the Board, the 
following policy statement and policy guide- 
lines on enrollment at the Harbor Campus of the 
University of Massachusetts/Boston: 

When the University of Massachusetts at Boston was 
established by the legislature in 1965, universities and 
colleges across the country were caught up in an unprece- 
dented expansion. The number of students enrolled in Massa- 
chusetts increased from 113,000 to 300,000 during the 1960's, 
and now total 327,000. Northeastern University doubled in 
size; Boston University went from 18,000 to 23,000 under- 
graduates; 15 new community colleges were established. The 
combined enrollment of the University and the State colleges 
grew by 50,000. Even so, the Board of Higher Education in 
1968 projected a shortage of 113,000 student places by 1980. 

When the University's Board of Trustees set an enroll- 
ment of 15,000 students for the Boston campus, it was 
generally regarded as an interim goal rather than a maximum. 
The early academic master plan spoke of 15,000 students in

four colleges, with provision for two additional colleges. 

In February, 1973, the Trustees changed the enrollment 
goal for the Columbia Point campus from 15,000 to 12,500. This 
change was related primarily to the desire to preserve the 
option of locating educational programs in other areas of the 
city. It was also related to new University-generated analyses 
which suggested that the statewide BHE projections for 1980 
were as much as 150,000 students too high. 

The decision to reduce future enrollment has proven 
sound in several ways: 

— it reduced neighborhood fears regarding the effect 
of the campus on adjacent communities; 

— it reduced the capital outlay requirements at 
Columbia Point by at least $50 million; 

— it anticipated changes in national and state birth 
and enrollment rates; 

— it has permitted the continued careful development 
of a high quality program. 

While 12,500 has remained the enrollment target for the 
campus, it has offered little specific guidance for planning. 
Important efforts at the campus such as the New Directions 
Committee have had to operate without authoritative assumptions 
as to the composition of the student body or the rate of 
growth. It has become increasingly clear that further defini- 
tion is required if the physical and program development is 
to continue. 

The following guidelines on the nature and timing of 
future enrollment growth at the Harbor Campus are based on 
the work of the Long-Range Planning Committee and staff 
analyses of the Planning Office. They are intended as a 
framework within which detailed planning can go forward within 
the University. 

In this context, the Trustees acknowledge the work of the 
New Directions Committee and its continuing concern with a 
broad range of development issues for the Harbor Campus. The 
Committee's report, which is due this summer, will be reviewed 
by the University Assembly and the Chancellor. The Long-Range 
Planning Committee of the Board will be glad to receive any 
recommendations that result from these reviews. 

The guidelines are as follows:

(1) the 1980 enrollment target for the Harbor Campus 
should be 10,000 full- and part-time students ; 

Original campus enrollment goals for 1980 assumed 
the kind of very rapid expansion which characterized 
UM/Amherst during the 1960's. They also reflected 
the intention to develop a series of similar 
liberal arts colleges. More recent developments — 
the nature of Colleges III and IV, the time needed 
for new program development, changes in application 
patterns, the desire for slow selective growth in 
graduate programs, budget constraints and the slow- 
down in capital outlay — all suggest a revised 
calendar. The 10,000 enrollment goal is headcount — 
both full- and part-time students — and represents 
an average enrollment increase of 600 students per 
year between 1974 and 1980. It is understood that 
there is intended to be considerable flexibility 
as to the rate of growth, including the possibility 
of reaching this target prior to 1980. 

(2) the full enrollment target for the mid-1980 's should 
be 12,500 full- and part-time students ; 

The 12,500 enrollment goal can be assumed to be the 
"ceiling" for the Harbor Campus. It is a headcount 
goal — both full- and part-time students — and is 
intended to be reached between 1983-1987. The 
12,500 ceiling does not apply to programs at UM/ 
Boston at other locations, such as the Downtown 
Center. 

(3) these enrollments should be assumed to include 
15-25% part-time students, and may be proportionately 
lower if this percentage is not reached; 



Fewer than 10% of the present students at the Harbor 
Campus are part-time. Current demand projections, 
and the commitment of the Harbor Campus to serving 
older and low-income students suggest that this 
percentage can and should be substantially increased 
so that 15-25% of the overall enrollment will be 
part-time students. A change of this nature raises 
important questions of financing and of educational 
program development that will attract and respond to 
the needs of part-time students. 

(4) the proportion of upper division students should 
be increased to reach a ratio of approximately 
60:40 ; 

The existence of four growing community colleges in 



I

COMMITTEE

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

the Boston area presents the University with both an 
opportunity and a responsibility to direct substan- 
tial attention to the needs of transfer students. 
The signing of the transfer "compact" is the first 
step in this direction. We are recommending con- 
tinuing efforts which would move toward a ratio of 
60% upper division to 40% lower division students 
rather than the present 50:50 division at the campus. 

(5) the number of graduate students should not exceed 
10-15% of the total number of students ; 

The interim report of the New Directions Committee 
of UMass/Boston clearly identifies the strong case 
for a most careful, selective, and measured growth 
in graduate programs at the Harbor Campus. The 
Committee has accepted a maximum at full development 
of 10% of the FTE (full-time equivalent) enrollment, 
given the assumptions outlined. The guideline of 
10-15% refers to headcount enrollment. 

(6) class scheduling and space planning for the campus 
should be undertaken so as to accommodate the full 
anticipated enrollment in four college buildings . 

The experience since January and internal analyses 
suggest that the enrollments indicated can be 
accommodated in four college buildings of approxi- 
mately the size of the two now occupied at the 
campus. This will require careful attention to 
imaginative and intensive space use and assumes 
the scheduling of additional late afternoon and/or 
early evening classes. The omission of a fifth 
classroom building will reduce capital outlay 
requirements, but explicit provision must be made 
for the siting of an additional college building if 
demand suggests in the 1980' s. 

There being no further business to come before the 
Committee, the meeting was adjourned at 12:00 noon.

The meeting was called to order at 12:05 p.m. by 
Chairman Gordon. 

The Chairman noted that at the May 20 joint meeting of 
the Committees on Budget and Finance, initial consideration had 
been given to the Establishment of a Commencement Fee for Commence - 
ment and Career Planning Activities (Doc. T74-095A) . He stated 
that while the proposed use of certain Commencement Fee monies for 
career planning purposes appeared sensible and desirable, there 
are legal questions concerning the proposal, and asked Mr. William 
Searson, General Counsel to the University, to comment on these. 

Mr. Searson stated that certain legal difficulties exist 
with respect to the interpretation of Chapter 75, Section 11, of 
the Massachusetts General Laws, which deals with trust funds and 
the powers of the Trustees in that area. 

Because the principles of liability are so strict here, 
Mr. Searson stated, he requested additional time to examine the 
question. Chairman Gordon stated that, as action on the Commence- 
ment Fee proposal is not urgent, he would wish to have Committee 
and Board consideration deferred pending receipt of a legal opinion 
from the General Counsel, and it was the sense of the Committee 
that this is the appropriate way to proceed.

The Chairman next turned to the Student Activities Tax 
for FY 1975, UM/Amherst (Doc. T74-113) . Vice Chancellor Gage 
stated that he has reviewed the budget and finds it in order, and 
therefore recommends approval. Chairman Gordon inquired whether 
the proposal has been approved by the Student Senate at UM/Amherst, 
and Trustee Savini replied in the affirmative. Counsel Searson, 
in response to Chairman Gordon, stated that he finds the requested 
action in order. Accordingly, upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that, 
effective July 1, 1974, the annual fee of 
$57.00, which includes $55.50 for the Student 
Senate Tax and $1.50 for the Distinguished 
Visitors Program, be established as the 
Student Activities Fee for University under- 
graduate students on the Amherst campus. 

A proposed Student Health Insurance Plan, UM/Amherst 
(Doc. T74-107) was discussed by Mr. Barry Averill, Director of 
University Health Services, UM/Amherst, who presented three proposed 
Votes to authorize the award of a contract for insurance coverage 
and for administering the plan. Trustee Pumphret raised several 
questions concerning the provisions and costs of the proposed pro- 
gram, stating that in his opinion the materials now before the 
Committee were inadequate in both depth and scope to permit adequate 
Trustee assessment of the proposal. 

During the ensuing discussion, Chairman Gordon inquired 
into the details of the bids that had been received, including 
proposed costs, and stated his conclusion that there is insufficient 
clarity concerning costs and details of coverage to permit informed 
Committee action at this time. It was noted that action by the 
Committee and Board at the next regularly scheduled meeting on 
August 7 would not provide the campus with adequate time to effect 
student notification and billing for the plan that is ultimately 
adopted, and that therefore action to enable approval of a more 
fully detailed student health insurance plan must be taken by the 
Board at its meeting today. 

Accordingly, with the concurrence of President Wood and 
the Amherst campus personnel, the Committee endorsed in principle 
the establishment of an optional comprehensive student health insur- 
ance program for UM/Amherst, and directed that a Vote be prepared 
for consideration by the Board of Trustees at its afternoon meeting 
that would authorize the Treasurer of the University, in consultation 
with the Chairman of the Finance Committee, the President of the 
University and the General Counsel of the University, to negotiate 
the provisions of such a health insurance plan, and authorize the 
Treasurer to execute an agreement on behalf of the University 
following such consultation and negotiation.

Chairman Gordon next addressed the proposed Establishment 
of a Student Housing Trust Fund, UM/Worcester (Doc. T74-103 and 
Doc. T74-103A) . President Wood stated that the proposal comes to 
the Finance Committee following endorsement by the Committee on 
Buildings and Grounds, and provides for student housing at three 
locations consistent with the student housing policy adopted by 
the Board. The Committee was now being asked to approve the estab- 
lishment of a trust fund to administer the program, he stated, 
prior to the occupancy of the three buildings. Upon motion made 
and seconded , it was 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that a 

Housing Trust Fund, UM/Worcester, be established 
effective July 1, 1974, for the operation of a 
self-supporting housing program for students and 
staff at the University of Massachusetts at 
Worcester, with preference in housing accommoda- 
tions to be given to medical students, all income 
from rents and other charges therefrom to be 
deposited in said fund with disbursements for 
operating and other expenses to be made in 
accordance with University accounting policy 
under the direction of the Treasurer of the 
University, provided that unrestricted trust 
fund balances in the Medical School Service 
Fund may be utilized as necessary in an amount 
not to exceed $29,000 to provide furnishings, 
refurbishing, and maintenance repairs in the 
Anderson House, the Farm House, and the Maple 
Cottage, said amount plus interest to be repaid 
to the Medical School Trust Fund as determined 
by the Treasurer of the University. 

and 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that the

Chairman Gordon, noting the presence at this meeting of 
the President and the three Chancellors, stated his expectation 
that requests for action that are brought before the Committee on 
Finance in the future be accompanied by documentation and background 
material that is sufficiently detailed to enable the Committee to 
reach an informed judgment, and that these materials be received 
by the Committee in sufficient time for such judgments to be made. 
This includes the processing of all proposals through both the 
proper campus channels and the President's Office in accordance 
with established procedures, including review by General Counsel 
before being placed on a Finance Committee agenda. He added that 
from time to time a genuine emergency may arise where timely dis- 
tribution of materials to the Committee will be difficult, but that 
the proper planning and clearing through channels of agenda material 
should minimize instances where the Committee is presented with late 
requests. 

There being no further business to come before the 
Committee, the meeting adjourned at 12:45 p.m.

of issues, among which where: 

(1) Difficulties created by the timing of faculty position 
release dates, deadlines for the hiring of new 
faculty and Legislative action on the budget. 

(2) The need for an appropriate procedure for determin- 
ing contact hours. 

(3) Merit increment policy and rationale for budgetary 
funding for merit . 

(4) Student-faculty ratio as a continuing yardstick and 
the need for clarification of the full-time equiva- 
lent student definitions. 

(5) The general fiscal atmosphere that may prevail while 
the FY 1976 budget is under review. 

(6) The necessity for FY 1975 deficiency budget requests 
for both utility costs and funding of the Teaching 
Hospital. 

The meeting concluded with the agreement that the Trustee 
Committee on the Budget would next meet during the last week in 
July to review the FY 1975 Operating Budget and that the Multi- 
campus Budget Committee would receive all budget development 
material produced over the summer and would meet again in September 
to review the FY 1976 Maintenance Budget Request. 

There being no further business, the meeting adjourned 
at 4:05 p.m.

MINUTES OF MEETING OF TRUSTEE COMMITTEE ON 
FACULTY AND EDUCATIONAL POLICY 

August 5, 1974; 2:00 p.m. 

Office of the President, University of Massachusetts 
One Washington Mall, Boston, Massachusetts 



PRESENT: Trustees and Trustee Staff : Chairman Troy, President 

Wood; Trustees Bicknell, Robertson, Savini; Dr. Bloomberg, 
representing Commissioner Goldman; Secretary Patterson 

Office of the President : Vice President Lynton 

UM/Amherst : Chancellor Bromery, Vice Chancellor and 
Provost Gluckstern; Faculty representatives Profs.

UM/Boston : Chancellor Golino 

UM/Worcester : Chancellor Soutter, Dr. Richard Walton 

Invited Guest: Miss Ellen Flannery 



The meeting was called to order at 2:05 p.m. by Chairman 



Troy. 



At the Chairman's request, the Committee first addressed 
a series of actions proposed for UM/Amherst. The initial proposal 
to Establish the Degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts in Design, UM / 
Amherst (Doc. T75-001), was endorsed by Vice President Lynton and 
discussed. Trustee Robertson asked whether the establishment of 
the degree would involve additional costs; Vice Chancellor Gluck- 
stern replied in the negative, saying that the action would simply 
recognize the presence of the design group in the Art Department, 
to which it had recently been transferred from the School of Home 
Economics and would provide an additional option in the Fine Arts 
programs already in existence in Art and Theatre. He said that 
faculty members in the design group, together with adjunct faculty 
from other disciplines, would be able to handle the program. 
Trustee Troy inquired whether "adjunct faculty" implied the 
possibility of additional costs, and Vice Chancellor Gluckstern 
again replied in the negative. Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board of Trustees approve 
the establishment of the degree of Bachelor of 
Fine Arts in Design at the University of Massa- 
chusetts at Amherst, and submit said proposal 
to the Board of Higher Education for its review 
and approval, to be implemented in September, 197 5.

The Chairman turned next to the proposed Name Change of 
the Department of Agriculture and Food Economics (Doc. T75-002) , 
which would redesignate that unit as the Department of Food 
and Resource Economics — UM/Amherst. Vice President Lynton indi- 
cated endorsement of the proposed name change, as did Chancellor 
Bromery and Vice Chancellor Gluckstern. Upon motion made and 
seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board of Trustees 

approve the name change of the Department of 
Agricultural and Food Economics at the 
University of Massachusetts at Amherst to the 
Department of Food and Resource Economics and 
that the Board further approve the respective 
name change for the undergraduate major. 

The Chairman then raised for consideration the proposed 
Name Change of the Department of Hispanic Languages and Literature 
(Doc. T75-003) , which would result in redesignation of that unit 
as the Department of Spanish and Portuguese — UM/Amherst. Vice 
President Lynton indicated endorsement of the proposed name 
change; Vice Chancellor Gluckstern suggested that redesignation 
of the Department might in the long run have resource implications, 
because of increasing recognition of the importance of the teaching 
of Portuguese in the Commonwealth. After brief further discussion, 
and upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board of Trustees approve 
the name change of the Department of Hispanic 
Languages and Literature, University of Massa- 
chusetts at Amherst, to the Department of Spanish 
and Portuguese. 

The Committee thereafter considered the proposed 
Abolishment of General Physical Education Requirement — UM/Amherst 
(Doc. T75-004), presented by Chancellor Bromery. Trustee Troy 
inquired whether abolition of the general physical education 
requirement would result in cost savings. Vice Chancellor Gluck- 
stern responded that some savings might result through reassignment 
of personnel to other programs. Trustee Savini expressed doubt 
that the abolition of the requirement would result in very much 
change in student demand for physical education offerings, and 
this view was supported by Professor Fletcher. After brief 
further discussion, and upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that the 
general physical education requirement at the 
University of Massachusetts at Amherst be 
abolished, effective September, 1974.

The Chairman next turned to the proposed Tenure Offer 
to Dr. Ira Trail (Doc. T75-005) , advanced by UM/Amherst and 
endorsed by President Wood. Vice President Lynton commented 
favorably on Dr. Trail's professional experience and preparation 
and spoke of her appointment as Professor of Nursing and Director 
of the Division of Nursing at Amherst as one which would bring 
substantial additional strength to this portion of the University's 
program. Trustee Robertson asked whether there had been a search 
from within the University in connection with the position in 
question. Vice Chancellor Gluckstern replied that such consider- 
ation had been made, but that those concerned within the University 
believed the outside appointment of Dr. Trail would be the proper 
course of action. Upon motion made and seconded, it was 



VOTED : To recommend that the Board of Trustees concur in 
the appointment by the President of Dr. Ira Trail 
as Professor of Nursing, with tenure, at the 
University of Massachusetts at Amherst, effective 
September 1, 1974. 

Chairman Troy then invited discussion of two proposals 
brought forward by UM/Boston: Concurrence in Appointment of Robert 
Spaethling (Doc. T75-010) and Concurrence in Appointment of Robert 
Steamer (Doc. T75-011) . Vice President Lynton spoke of presidential 
review and endorsement of the appointment of Dr. Robert Spaethling 
as Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and Provost at the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts at Boston and of appointment of Dr. Robert 
Steamer as Dean of College II at the University of Massachusetts 
at Boston. 

Chancellor Golino said that he enthusiastically urged 
concurrence in the appointment of both men, and commented on the 
work of the search committees which had settled upon their candi- 
dacy. He indicated that the search committees had decided not 
to go beyond the campus in seeking candidates, had gotten wide- 
spread endorsement from the campus for the candidates proposed, 
and that he looked forward to working effectively with both men. 
He said that the Affirmative Action Advisory Council on the campus 
of UM/Boston had criticized the search procedures utilized in the 
case of these two positions and that of Dean of College IV, but 
he stressed that he considered these procedures to have been satis- 
factory both in terms of Affirmative Action considerations and the 
needs of the campus for stability in its top administrative leader- 
ship . 

President Wood indicated his support for Chancellor 
Golino 's position, and reviewed with the Committee a series of 
correspondence documents among the Affirmative Action Advisory 
Council, Chancellor Golino, and himself. He said that these were 
administrative communications rather than public documents, but 
that he felt a review of them would assist the Committee in

understanding the views of the Affirmative Action Advisory Council 
and of Chancellor Golino and himself. He noted particularly that, 
in Document T73-095, the Board of Trustees on April 4, 1973, had 
vested in the campus Chancellors authority to appoint Vice Chan- 
cellors, Provost, and Deans of the campus, subject to the concur- 
rence of the President and the Board of Trustees, and mandated 
that the Chancellor in any given case seek nominations from a 
search committee "broadly representative of the constituency of 
the office to be appointed." He said that the Board document 
had also directed that the Chancellors seek mutual agreement with 
the appropriate governing bodies as to the composition and charge 
of the search committee. President Wood observed that on both 
counts Chancellor Golino had amply complied with the formal pro- 
visions of the Trustee rule. President Wood said that he con- 
sidered that a central issue in terms of affirmative action was 
whether in the selection of senior academic administrators it was 
invariably necessary and desirable to go outside the University in 
a search for condidates. He commented that this would be the case 
only if the overall pattern of appointments revealed an indifference 
to affirmative action considerations, in which case there would be 
cause for concern. He said further that in the case of the 
Boston campus the facts did not suggest a restrictive pattern. 
He pointed out that over the past four years two appointments to 
Vice Chancellorships , and four to Deanships, had been from outside, 
and that two women and one minority member had been among the 
choices. President Wood said in addition that he had been advised 
by Counsel that there were no legal questions of affirmative 
action involved in the two appointments presently under consider- 
ation. 

Discussion followed in which Trustee Robertson, Chan- 
cellor Bromery, Dr. Bloomberg, and others took part. Commissioner 
Bicknell expressed his regret that the affirmative action material 
on the two appointments had been made available to the Committee 
only at the meeting, and his view that the documents suggest that 
some thoughtful people had been upset by the procedures used. 
He suggested that longer consideration could be given to the two 
appointments. Trustee Savini stated his view that affirmative 
action cannot be considered analogous to standards of merit or 
civil service requirements but should be seen as "a commitment to 
social change," and said that he felt there should be more of a 
commitment of this kind than appeared to him to exist in the 
present instance. 

Chancellor Golino said that the Affirmative Action 
program of the Department of HEW did not require an affirmative 
action appointment in every case, but required institutions to 
establish goals toward which they would work; he said further 
that since his arrival on the Boston campus substantial strides 
had been taken toward the establishment and implementation of 
such goals. Chancellor Golino said that within this context the

the presentation of these two candidates for concurrence was made 
in consideration of the merit of the individuals involved and the 
nature of institutional needs at the Boston campus. 

Chancellor Bromery indicated his support of President 
Wood and Chancellor Golino in advocating the two appointments for 
the institutional and individual reasons advanced, but stated his 
view that the Affirmative Action Advisory Council should have an 
earlier opportunity to provide advice in future comparable actions. 
Trustee Robertson concurred, and asked that the record show that 
the Committee suggested early advisory participation by Affirmative 
Action advocacy. Upon motion made and seconded, with two nay votes 
by Commissioner Bicknell and Trustee Savini, it was 



VOTED : 



To recommend that the Board of Trustees concur 
in the appointment of Dr. Robert Spaethling as 
Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and Provost 
at the University of Massachusetts at Boston. 



And further 



VOTED : 



To recommend that the Board of Trustees concur 
in the appointment of Dr. Robert Steamer as 
Dean of College II at the University of Massa- 
chusetts at Boston. 



Commissioner Bicknell asked that the record show that his vote was 
not against the qualifications of the individuals but rather concern 
for appropriate and full implementation of Affirmative Action 
employment and search procedures. 

Chairman Troy then recognized Chancellor Soutter to speak 
in behalf of Establishment of Department of Family Practice (Doc. 
T75-009), at the Medical School. The Chancellor mentioned the 
origin of the program within the Department of Community and Family 
Medicine, and reviewed the vote of the Executive Committee of the 
Medical Faculty to create a Department of Family Practice to be 
separate but related to the original department. He asked Dr. 
Richard F. Walton, the head of the Family Practice program at the 
Medical School, to describe the reasons for establishing a separate 
Department of Family Practice. Dr. Walton reviewed the need for a 
special department of graduate residency in Family Practice which 
would be additional and complementary to work in Community Medicine. 
Chancellor Soutter said that the visiting accrediting team in 
February 1974 had urged the creation of a separate postgraduate 
residency department of this type, and that the faculty of the 
Medical School agreed with this recommendation. After Trustee 
discussion and questions, upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED ; To recommend that the Board of Trustees approve 
the establishment of a Department of Family 
Practice at the University of Massachusetts at 
Worcester .

At the Chairman's request, Chancellor Soutter spoke to 
Appointment with Tenure of Dr. H. Brownell Wheeler as Professor 
of Surgery (Doc. T75-006) , saying that the appointment was not 
only desirable but necessary to correct an earlier oversight in 
appointment procedures. Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board of Trustees concur 
in the appointment by the President of Dr. H. 
Brownell Wheeler as Professor of Surgery with 
Tenure at the University of Massachusetts at 
Worcester. 

In response to a question by Trustee Robertson, President Wood 
indicated that the date of effectiveness of appointment would be 
that of Board action. 

Chancellor Soutter next spoke in behalf of Appointment 
with Tenure of Dr. Ambrose P. McLaughlin III, as Professor of 
Urology (Doc. T75-007) . The Chancellor called attention to 
Dr. McLaughlin's qualifications as a scholar and teacher who also 
possesses administrative experience. He advised the Trustees of 
his belief that Dr. McLaughlin would provide leadership in further 
development of the Medical School as Chairman of the Department 
of Urology. Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board of Trustees concur 
in the appointment by the President of Dr. 
Ambrose P. McLaughlin III, as Professor of 
Urology with tenure at the University of Massa-

It is understood that this appointment will be effective January 1, 
1975. 

Chancellor Soutter next spoke to the proposed Appoint- 
ment with Tenure of Dr. Edgar E. Smith (Doc. T75-008) . Chancellor 
Soutter said that he would expect Dr. Smith to serve as Associate 
Dean for Academic Affairs in addition to his professorial duties, 
and that he believed Dr. Smith would bring to the School an under- 
standing of the functioning of the Dean's department and an 
unusual insight into the needs of minority students and how they 
may be met. Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board of Trustees concur 

in the appointment by the President of Dr. Edgar 
E. Smith as Associate Professor of Biochemistry 
with tenure at the University of Massachusetts 
at Worcester, effective October 1, 1974.

The meeting was called to order at 11:10 a.m. 

The Chairman asked Chancellor Bromery to review the 
nature of a proposed agreement between the University of Massa- 
chusetts and Amherst College with regard to land to be utilized 
for radio broadcasting antennae. Chancellor Bromery described 
existing and proposed radiating antennae of WTCR (Five College 
FM radio based at UM/Amherst) , WMUA (UM/Amherst student station) , 
and WAMH (Amherst College student station) . He noted that the 
WFCR broadcasting facility on Mt . Lincoln is accompanied by a 
passive receiving antenna to pick up signals by line of sight 
from WGBH in Boston for rebroadcast on WFCR. Chancellor Bromery 
said that it had been proposed by Amherst College that WAMH, 
with increased power capacity for better coverage, be enabled to 
install new radiating antennae equipment on Mt. Lincoln. Engineer- 
ing studies, however, had revealed that such an installation, with 
additional power, would interfere with reception of WGBH signals 
at that site, and would therefore be disadvantageous to Five 
College Radio — WFCR. Chancellor Bromery noted further that 
Amherst College owned approximately 2 acres of land in the middle 
of the 200 acres of land held by the University of Massachusetts 
on Mt . Lincoln. As a result of all of these considerations, he 
said that negotiations between the University and Amherst College 



I

had proceeded in an attempt to work out a solution which would not 
interfere with WGBH reception and would allow enlarged broadcasting 
by WAMH. These negotiations have come to involve proposed transfer 
of two parcels of land from the Trustees of Amherst College to the 
Commonwealth of Massachusetts, which would enable WAMH to utilize 
the Mt . Lincoln site, and would provide WFCR with a better site for 
clearer reception of signals from WGBH at a location in Shutesbury, 
Massachusetts. After this presentation by the Chancellor, and upon 
motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that the 
Trustees of the University of Massachusetts 
shall accept two quitclaim deeds conveying the 
fee in two separate parcels of land respectively 
from the Trustees of Amherst College as follows:

license shall be for 99 years or until station 
WAMH ceases to function, whichever event first 
occurs .

and empowered to execute all instruments including, 
but not limited to licenses and contracts for and 
in behalf of the University of Massachusetts to

Progre^ )MMITTEE 

Report 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



At the Chairman's request, President Wood next led a 
brief discussion of campus proposals for reorganization. He said 
that he wished to keep the Executive Committee informed with regard 
to the development of campus organization in cooperation with the 
Office of the President. President Wood reported that he had 
created within his own Office a Management Task Force on University 
Organization, chaired by the Reverend Michael P. Walsh, S.J., and 
that this committee was reviewing administrative organization and 
proposals for reorganization from the three campuses, as these 
relate to Trustee policy, University-wide leadership, Trustee 
delegations of personnel authority, the Statement on University 
Governance (Doc. T73-098) and information about organizational 
structures in other comparable universities. 

At the President's request, Chancellor Bromery reported 
that, since the beginning of his administration, he had undertaken 
a continuing assessment of the administrative organization of 
UM/Amherst, had concluded that earlier studies had resulted in 
organizational structures that served symmetry better than function, 
and now had a developing series of reorganization steps in the 
proposal stage, subject to comment by constituencies of the campus. 
He emphasized the principle that reorganization of administration 
at UM/Amherst should be directed at achieving greater functional 
effectiveness, with clear and practicable delegation and provision 
for accountability. 

Chancellor Bromery said there was no "frozen-in" plan as 
yet but that he expected, after securing internal campus responses, 
to be able to move toward reorganization in the first semester of 
the coming academic year. In response to questions, the Chancellor 
said that he expected reorganization would result in having approx- 
imately six to seven line officers reporting directly to him, 
would relieve what he regarded as the present overload of the Vice 
Chancellor and Provost, would pursue a goal of no increase in 
staff, would provide for more adequate handling of such diverse 
matters as financial development and admissions, and would enable 
him, through the Office of Institutional Analysis, to be provided 
with fuller and better information about operations of the campus. 

Chancellor Golino, in response to President Wood's 
request, stressed that UM/Boston under his leadership was attempting 
to organize more effectively, rather than to reorganize. He said 
that the principal problem he faced was twofold: first, to bring 
back into the Chancellor's administrative control many matters that 
had been ineffectively dispersed and then clearly to redelegate 
responsibility for these matters; and second, to establish clear 
and firm, rather than ad hoc , operational procedures for handling 
administrative operations. In response to questions, Chancellor 
Golino said that he expected to have effective answers to these 
two needs during the coming academic year.

Chairman Healey then turned discussion to the matter of 
a faculty practice compensation plan for the Medical School. 
President Wood summarized the long consideration given to the 
question of Medical faculty compensation arrangements necessary 
when both the Medical School and the Teaching Hospital would be 
in operation. He noted that it had been decided that the Legisla- 
ture should be asked to establish the proper basis for such arrange- 
ments, and that this had resulted in passage of House Bill No. 6368, 
"An Act Authorizing the Establishing of a Group Practice Plan at 
the University of Massachusetts Medical School," late in the 1974 
session. 

The President said that, after passage of the legisla- 
tion and particularly in the period from August 1 to August 6, 
intensive negotiations had been required between his office, 
Commissioner Bicknell, and the staffs of the Governor and the 
Secretary of Administration and Finance in order to arrive at 
mutual understandings upon which the Governor might sign the Bill 
into law by August 6, after which, if unsigned, it would effectively 
have been vetoed. He noted Commissioner Bicknell' s letter to the 
Governor dated August 1, 1974, urging veto of the Bill unless 
amended, his own letter to the Governor of August 2 commenting on 
Commissioner Bicknell 's views, and remarked on questions raised 
by staff of the Governor and of the Secretary of Administration and 
Finance about implementation of the plan, which entered into the 
intensive negotiations that followed. 

President Wood said that he had secured agreement on 
August 2 from the Governor's Office not to send down proposed 
amendments in the closing hours before General Court prorogation, 
on the understanding that the parties concerned would seek to 
resolve questions and differences by negotiation. He called 
attention to the Memorandum of Understanding RE: House Bill 
No. 6368 of 1974 (Doc. T75-014) which resulted from these negoti- 
ations and recommended its ratification and approval. The President 
observed that the first four points of the memorandum represented 
satisfactory resolution of the issues raised by the Commissioner 
of Public Health, and that the remaining points dealt with matters 
raised by staff of the Secretary of Administration and Finance. He 
called attention to Item 7, which in earlier negotiation could have 
required a two-thirds vote of the Board of Trustees of the Univer- 
sity to override Administration and Finance disagreement with 
rules, regulations, or proposed account structures established by 
the University under the plan. The President said that such a 
requirement would have been unacceptable to the University, and 
Chairman Healey strongly concurred. In its present form, Item 7 
was seen as acceptable. 

In discussion, Commissioner Bicknell said that his letter 
of August 1 had been written in response to a request from the 
Governor's Office for his comments on House Bill No. 6368, that he

felt the subsequent negotiations had been constructive, and that 
he looked toward development of useful cooperative ties between 
the Department of Public Health and the Medical School. Trustee 
Gordon commented critically on the need for last minute negoti- 
ations of the kind described and urged improved communication 
between the University and the Department of Public Health. 
Trustee Pumphret suggested that such communication would result 
if the Commissioner of Public Health, as an ex officio Trustee 
of the University, participated, either himself or through an 
appointed alternate, in ongoing relevant Committee work of the 
Board. Commissioner Bicknell indicated that he intended such 
participation. 

Upon motion made and seconded, it was

on Salaries for

at the Univer- 
sity of Massa-

(Doc. T75-013) 



Chairman Healey then asked for consideration of the 
Interim Guide on Salaries for the Group Practice Plan at the 
University of Massachusetts Medical School (Doc. T75-013) . Vice 
President Lynton described the development of the Interim Guide, 
indicating that it is a first approximation, which will require 
substantial additional work as the University moves toward the 
specification and adoption of rules and regulations, governing the 
Group Practice Plan in operation. Chancellor Soutter agreed, 
saying that it is necessary to have such an Interim Guide for 
personnel actions needed in the near future, and that he expected 
with Vice President Lynton that more specific guidelines would be 
prepared as the plan is implemented. 

Commissioner Bicknell said that he had no difficulties 
with the Interim Plan, but had only two questions, these being 
whether there was a maximum dollar amount on what a given profes- 
sional could retain income, and what would happen if the Group 
Practice Plan did not generate the money needed to provide for 
the salaries specified. Vice President Lynton indicated that the 
maximums at present would be governed by the Interim Guide, that 
it was expected that capitation grants and other funds would assure 
that start-up costs could be met until Group Practice was in full 
operation, and that thereafter income experience with the Group 
Practice Plan would govern decisions about total salaries and 
further appointments. 

Upon motion made and seconded, it was

The meeting was called to order at 2:05 p.m. by Chairman 
Pumphret, who asked Dr. Gartenberg, Director of the Budget, to 
review for the Committee the processes which had culminated in the 
budget which would be considered at this meeting. Dr. Gartenberg 
stated that the University of Massachusetts Operating Budget for 
Fiscal Year 1975 (Doc. T75-017) had been circulated to the 
Committee prior to the meeting and that this was a summary document 
which is supported by detailed statements from each campus. Dr. 
Gartenberg said that the development of this document ended Phase I 
of the budget process which began with the submission of the 
campus program reviews. He further stated that this budget was 
passed by the Legislature in June, that detailed information 
regarding subsidiary accounts was received in July, and that the 
breakdown on approved personnel positions had just been received. 
He also noted that the Budget Committee meeting was scheduled 
early in the month to allow time to prepare answers to any 
questions that might result from Committee review. 

The total budget, amounting to $154.4 million, repre- 
sents a $20 million increase over the initial operating budget 
presented to the Trustees last year. Half of the increase is 
from State funds and the other half from increases in Federal 
aid and in trust funds. Federal financial aid has increased 
from 1.2 to 3.4 million dollars.

Dr. Gartenberg explained that the budget for both the 
Medical School and the Teaching Hospital will have to be adjusted 
to meet the particular needs of these facilities as the year pro- 
gresses. He informed the Committee that a consulting firm has been 
engaged to advise on budgeting for anticipated fuel increases. The 
cost-of-living increase which was voted by the Legislature should be 
covered by a reserve fund established by the Department of Admin- 
istration and Finance for that purpose. 

Dr. Gartenberg requested Mrs. Kay Hanson, Assistant Budget 
Director, to review the Administration's budget. Mrs. Hanson 
explained that included in this budget were the expenses for the 
Office of the President, the Office of the Treasurer, the Office of 
the Secretary, the Board of Trustees, the Office of Liaison Service, 
the Trustee Council, and the Institute for Labor Affairs. She 
informed the Committee that nearly all of the increased expense 
was personnel-related, a result of the fact that the President's 
Office now has a full complement of staff. Inflation accounted for 
the rest of the 7 percent increase. 

At the request of the Chairman, Dr. Gulko, Director of the 
Office of Budgeting and Institutional Studies at UM/Amherst, reviewed 
that portion of the budget covering the Amherst campus operations, 
stating that the FY 1975 budget showed an increase of approximately 
$3 million over the 1974 budget, or a 5 percent increase. He stated 
that it is expected that fuel costs will be double the amount 
reflected in the budget and that a supplementary budget request 
will be necessary. 

In response to a question raised by Chairman Pumphret, 
Chancellor Bromery stated that although the expenses for the office 
serving the Alumni appeared to be substantially higher, the income 
raised by the Alumni more than offset the increased expenditures. 

It was noted that Federal financial aid has doubled over 
the previous year. Trustee Carlson suggested that in some places 
the data for FY 1974 were not comparable to that for FY 1975 and 
that it would be helpful if data for both years could be reported 
on the same basis to facilitate comparisons. He also asked if it 
would be possible to obtain in one document the total income 
received by the University as well as the total monies expended. 

Chairman Pumphret next called on Vice Chancellor Hamilton, 
who reviewed the Boston campus budget, indicating that it repre- 
sents a 20 percent increase over the FY 1974 budget, exclusive of 
the cost-of-living increase. He stated that the greatest increase 
was in salaries, the result of funding all the positions authorized. 
He further indicated that he anticipated a deficit in the utilities 
account in the amount of $900,000, a result of the increase in the 
cost of electricity. He also pointed out that the total enrollment 
figure for FY 1975 appeared incorrectly in some places in the budget 
and that the correct figure is 6,600.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

The Chairman next asked for a review of the budget for 
the Worcester campus, and Mr. Stockwell, Director of the Hospital 
and Associate Dean of Administration for the Medical School, 
reported on this item. 

Trustee Pumphret raised a question with regard to the 
funding for the Teaching Hospital, questioning whether this should 
be part of the Medical School budget. He referred particularly to 
the statement in the front of the budget which indicated that FY 
1975 would be the only year in which the two budgets would be 
commingled. Mr. Pumphret asked whether the Teaching Hospital would 
be opened if the University did not receive a supplementary budget 
for equipment and operating expenses. Mr. Stockwell stated that 
$3.5 million had been appropriated in the FY 1975 Capital Outlay 
Budget for equipment for the hospital, but that if the hospital 
does not have the necessary funding by December or January, it will 
probably be difficult to open. He said that it is possible that 
the clinics could open in March, even though funds were not avail- 
able for the hospital itself. He indicated that FY 1975 will see 
major increases in personnel and maintenance costs for both the 
Teaching Hospital and the Medical School. For the first time, 
beginning in FY 1975, the entire Basic and Clinical Sciences 
Building will be in operation. 

Trustee Carlson asked why maintenance costs had not 
increased to a greater extent, and Mr. Stockwell replied that 
most of the space was still owned by the contractor. In addition, 
the campus maintenance staff is still too small to handle all 
items. Mr. Stockwell also emphasized that the University cannot 
delay the acceptance and heating of the hospital building. 

Trustee Pumphret stressed the problems resulting from an 
appropriation of only $618,000 from the Medical School budget for 
FY 1975 for use in opening the Teaching Hospital in response to a 
request for $3,700,000, and both he and Trustee Carlson urged 
that the Board of Trustees be apprised of this situation by a 
written statement accompanying the budget presentation. Mr. 
Pumphret also requested that the administration at UM/Worcester 
keep the Trustees informed as to the funding problems being encoun- 
tered with regard to the Teaching Hospital. He also suggested 
that a separate budget for the hospital would bring out more 
clearly the lack of support being given to this project. 

Trustee Carlson suggested that an accurate long-range 
projection of the revenue anticipated from the operation of the 
hospital should be developed. He also requested that a summary 
of the FY 1975 capital outlay budget be provided to the Trustees. 

After further brief discussion, upon motion made and 
seconded, it was

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



TRUSTEE COMMITTEE ON STUDENT AFFAIRS 

August 20, 1974; 1:00 p.m. 

Room 1001, Campus Center 
University of Massachusetts at Amherst 



PRESENT: Trustees and Trustee Staff : Chairman Shaler; Trustees 
Abrams and Savini; Miss Eichel 

Administrators, Faculty, Staff, and Invited Guests : 

Office of the President : Dr. Keith, Mr. Cooley, 
Mr. Cahill 

UM/Amherst : Chancellor Bromery, Vice Chancellor and 
Provost Gluckstern, Vice Chancellor Gage, Mr. Doolan, 
Ms. Green, Mr. Preston, Ms. Creegan 

UM/Boston: Vice Chancellor Tubbs 



The meeting was called to order at 1:00 p.m. by Chairman 
Shaler, who introduced the topic of Tuition Waivers for Residence 
Hall Counselors (Doc. T75-016) and requested Dr. Gage, Vice Chan- 
cellor for Student Affairs, to review the background for this item. 
Dr. Gage explained that tuition waivers had been initiated on a 
two-year trial basis by the Board of Trustees in 1972 in order to 
supplement the meager cash reimbursement received by residence hall 
counselors at a time when their responsibility was increasing. 
He stated that two years had not been sufficient time in which to 
evaluate this program and that renewing these waivers for a period 
of one year would enable the campus administration to make a better 
evaluation and also to continue the program until a thorough review 
of all campus tuition waivers, which is now underway, could be 
completed. 

Trustee Savini stated that he was in favor of continuing 
the tuition waivers to residence hall counselors, but that he would 
like to amend the proposed vote to include also waivers for twenty 
student government leaders. 

Vice Chancellor Gage expressed the view that including 
the student government association workers could represent a prob- 
lem, as tuition waivers were primarily given to graduate students 
and based on a contribution to the educational process, the two 
exceptions being the waivers to the residence hall counselors and 
those to some foreign students. Dr. Keith also noted that the 
President's Office had requested a moratorium on tuition waivers 
until such time as a complete study of this matter had been made 



\

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

and that it would be inappropriate to add a new classification of 
tuition waivers at this time. Mr. Shaler stated that he understood 
that there was some concern among Legislators as to the number of 
students already receiving waivers. 

After further brief discussion, a vote was taken on the 
amendment to the proposed vote to include "20 student government 
leaders". This amendment was defeated and then on motion made and 
seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that the 
approval granted the Chancellor of the Amherst 
Campus (Doc. T72-175) to offer a waiver of 
tuition at the undergraduate in-state rate to a 
maximum of 400 undergraduate residence hall 
counselors, or their equivalent, be extended 
for one academic year with the explicit under- 
standing that an evaluation of the residence 
hall counselor program be submitted to the 
President's Office by January 1975. 

Chairman Shaler next turned to the subject of Policies 
and Procedures Relative to the Possession, Consumption, and Sale 
of Alcoholic Beverages at the University of Massachusetts at Boston 
(Doc. T75-015A) . At the Chairman's request, Vice Chancellor Tubbs 
explained that the policy relating to alcoholic beverages at the 
Boston campus is consistent with the policy adopted by the Amherst 
campus with the exception of reference to residence halls and 
fraternities and sororities. There being no questions with regard 
to the proposed policy, on motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees the 
adoption and approval of the policies and 
procedures relative to the possession, con- 
sumption, and sale of alcoholic beverages at 
the University of Massachusetts at Boston, 
as set forth in Document T75-015A. 

Chairman Shaler next requested Mr. Robert Doolan, 
Director of Admissions at UM/Amherst, to speak to the topic of a 
proposed Early Admissions Program. Mr. Doolan stated that this 
program is being proposed in order to benefit students who wish to 
attend the University of Massachusetts in preference to any other 
college and who will not apply elsewhere for early admission. Such 
a program would help both the student and the University by making 
possible a firm commitment early in the academic year. Mr. Doolan 
stated that he anticipated that not more than 500 students would 
be included in such an early admissions program and that a non- 
refundable fee of $100 was being proposed to make certain that only 
those students would apply for early admission who were truly 
committed to attend the University.

Mr. Cooley expressed concern that such a program might 
prove discriminatory both to the early admissions applicant if he 
were not accepted and to those students applying in the regular 
admissions process. He also stated that where the University 
already has a rolling admissions program, he did not see the need 
for early admissions. Mr. Doolan stated that the early admissions 
program would not have an adverse effect on either the early 
admissions or the regular applicant, as the early admissions 
applicant could still get into the regular admissions pool and 
that the number accepted under an early admissions program would 
not seriously deplete the number of openings for those students 
filing applications in the regular manner. What it would do, he 
felt, was make possible an early reply to those students who did 
not desire to go elsewhere if they were not accepted at the Univer- 
sity and it would tend to reduce the number of multiple applica- 
tions made by students in the regular process. 

Trustee Abrams asked if there was a cooperative plan 
among private colleges to share information on applicants for 
early admission and received an affirmative reply. Chairman Shaler 
asked whether an early admissions program would be of assistance 
to minority students and Mr. Doolan replied that he did not feel 
it would affect minority students in any way. Mr. Doolan felt it 
would, however, help the University in determining the mix of 
students and it would also be beneficial to students who require 
financial aid. Mr. Doolan would like to see the program accepted 
on a trial basis. 

Mr. Cooley again expressed concern that such a program 
might prove to be discriminatory and stated that at SUNY such a 
plan had been abandoned after it had proved to adversely affect 
certain groups of students and the Legislature and voted not to 
allow it to continue. 

Chancellor Bromery stated that he felt such a program 
could be discriminatory either for or against the applicants, but 
that he did not expect this to be the case at UM/Amherst. Because 
many students submit multiple applications, Chancellor Bromery 
stated that it was necessary to accept twice as many students as 
will actually come, and three times the number of women. He feels 
that an early admissions program might help alleviate this problem. 

Chairman Shaler suggested that data be obtained from 
other institutions, both as to which schools have early admissions 
programs and as to what the problems have been in those institu- 
tions where such programs have been initiated. Dr. Abrams also 
suggested getting input from high school guidance counselors. 

Chairman Shaler suggested that, after more study on the 
matter, the Committee would make its recommendation to the Board 
of Trustees later in the year. 



COMMITTEE 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Chairman Shaler then asked Trustee Savini to inform the 
Committee about Student Government Association planning for a 
Student-Trustee conference. Trustee Savini stated that students 
wished to talk with the Trustees and show them how money collected 
from the Student Activities Fee was being used — to familiarize the 
Trustees with the various student activities at the campus, such as 
the Everywoman's Center, and the Afro-American Center. He said that 
this would take the place of the SWAP Conference. Chancellor 
Bromery indicated that it might also be well for the administrative 
personnel at the campus to be a part of such a conference. 

Both Trustees Abrams and Shaler felt that it might be 
difficult to get the entire Board to attend such a conference, but 
thought it might be a better idea to plan to have some function each 
time the Trustees were on campus for a Board meeting, to acquaint 
them with one activity at a time and to expect only a few Trustees 
at any one of these functions due to the heaviness of the schedules 
of a number of Trustees. 

Chairman Shaler suggested that he and the President of 
the Student Senate (Trustee Savini) meet to discuss this matter 
further, with the understanding that the Committee on Student 
Affairs could sponsor such student-trustee forums in cooperation 
with the Student Government Association. Mr. Preston suggested that 
it might be wise to give the Trustees several options from which to 
choose. Provost Gluckstern asked if it might be well to plan such 
activities at a time when the Trustees were dealing with the 
student fee-based budget, but after discussion it was the consensus 
that this would be too late in the academic year. Dr. Abrams 
suggested that these meetings take place on the morning of Board 
meetings, since many persons set aside the entire day. 

Chairman Shaler asked about items pending for Committee 
consideration, and Dr. Keith mentioned the following: A decision 
with regard to early admissions, a revision to the student code of 
conduct and parking regulations — all UM/Amherst items; he also 
mentioned the day-car centers, fees for which were being considered 
by the Finance Committee. Vice Chancellor Tubbs said that the day- 
care centers at UM/Boston were being administered by the Student 
Affairs Department. 

There being no further business, the meeting was 
adjourned at 2:22 p.m.

Invited Guests : Mr. Edward H. Ladd of Standish, Ayer 
and Wood, Inc. 



The meeting was called to order at 4:00 p.m. by Chairman 



Gordon . 



The Chairman turned first to Mr. Ladd of the firm of 
Standish, Ayer and Wood, Investment Counsel to the University, for 
a report and recommendations. As Mr. Ladd began, Trustee Pumphret 
questioned the usefulness of general discussion of University 
investments without going over the portfolio itself thoroughly. 
He said that in view of the changing economy he would prefer a 
discussion utilizing exact and current detail. Treasurer Johnson 
commented that, at its October meeting, the Committee would have 
before it a thorough examination of the portfolio in writing; he 
suggested there should be a full and careful discussion at that 
time. 

There followed a discussion led by Mr. Ladd relative to 
the disposition of $28,000 currently available for investment. Mr, 
Ladd reviewed the characteristics and conditions of three firms 
in which his firm recommended investment: American Cyanamid, 
Eastman Kodak, and General Signal. Upon motion made and seconded, 
it was 

VOTED : To recommend that Kenneth W. Johnson, Treasurer 

of the University of Massachusetts, be authorized 
and empowered to execute the purchase of the 
following securities: 



COMMITTEE

The Committee then discussed with Investment Counsel the 
present nature of the economy and possibilities within it for the 
foreseeable future. The distribution of bonds and stocks in the 
portfolio was discussed in general terms, and Mr. Ladd summarized 
some of the difficult questions now before utilities, commercial 
banks, corporations dealing in the international sector and other 
matters. At the end of this review and discussion, Trustee Gordon 
emphasized that the Committee would expect a very thorough examina- 
tion of the portfolio in preparation for its October meeting. 

At the Chairman's request, Treasurer Johnson proposed an 
amendment to University travel rules and regulations to bring 
mileage compensation provided by the University for business-related 
auto travel in line with provisions recently voted by the legisla- 
ture. Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that the 
University Travel Rules and Regulations be 
amended to conform with Section 6 of Chapter 431 
of the Acts of 1974, irrespective of the source 
of funds from which mileage allowance is paid, 
namely, the allowance to state employees for 
expenses incurred by them in the operation of 
motor vehicles owned by them and used in the 
performance of their official duties shall not 
exceed twelve cents a mile effective July 1, 1974. 

Again at the Chairman's request, Treasurer Johnson pre- 
sented documentation relative to three new endowment funds to be 
established. These were detailed in Raymond Chamber 1 in Endowment 
Fund (Doc. T75-018) , Harvey Swados Endowment Fund (Doc. T75-019) , 
and Frank Prentice Rand Endowment Fund (Doc. T75-020) , each of which 
would add to resources available to the University. Upon motion 
made and seconded, it was 



VOTED: 



To recommend to the Board of Trustees the acceptance 
of the bequest under the Last Will and Testament 
of Mildred L. Evans, in the amount of $6,000, to 
establish the Raymond Chamberlin Fund as an Endow- 
ment Fund, the income only to be used from time to 
time toward the payment of tuition of worthy and 
needy young students of the Protestant faith enrolled 
at the Amherst campus as may be selected by the 
campus Committee on Scholarship and Financial Aid.

sity of Massachusetts at Amherst majoring in 
Fine Arts or Drama. The recipient shall be 
selected by a committee consisting of one 
member of the Fine Arts Council, one member 
of the Drama Department and the Dean of 
Fine Arts. 



Treasurer Johnson then summarized Document T75-022, 
dealing with the Margaret J. Hyland Portrait . The Treasurer noted 
that the late Mr. William F. Hyland, who had established a scholar- 
ship fund to benefit students from Holyoke who attend the Univer- 
sity, had also provided in his trust indenture to have a picture 
of his sister, Margaret J. Hyland, hung in an appropriate place 
at the University of Massachusetts. Treasurer Johnson advised that 
the portrait of Miss Hyland had been received from the First Bank 
and Trust Company of Springfield, and that what was required at 
present was official acknowledgment of receipt. Upon motion made 
and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To acknowledge receipt of a portrait of Margaret 
J. Hyland in connection with the terms of the 
trust indenture established by Mr. William F. 
Hyland, as executed by the First Bank and Trust 
Company of Springfield, and described in 
Margaret J. Hyland Portrait (Doc. T75-022) .

Chairman Gordon then opened discussion on Supplement to 
the FY 1975 Fee-Based Budget (Doc. T75-023) proposed by Chancellor 
Bromery of UM/Amherst on August 14, 1974. The Supplement proposed 
a schedule of charges for day care centers and the Skinner Labora- 
tory School in order to bring the day care funding in line with 
similar fee-based operations elsewhere on the campus. In discussion 
of the proposal, Mrs. Hanson asked for clarification of the rela- 
tionship between state and non-state funds in the present budget 
support of day care centers at the campus. Mr. Broekhuizen said 
that it was considered at the campus that the educational component 
of day care center operations justified using state funds in part 
for support of such activities. He said that this consideration 
was being followed in practice at present, with non-educational 
aspects of day care center operation considered supportable by fee 
charges. Mrs. Hanson asked further whether the day care centers 
were being conducted in state-owned buildings and received an 
affirmative reply. She went on to say that it is a delicate matter 
to mix state and non-state trust funds in support of any operations 
of the University, a point with which Trustees present and the 
Treasurer agreed. Chairman Gordon emphasized that when matters 
come before the Committee which involve such a mixture he desired 
that they first be thoroughly reviewed by University counsel. In 
the case of such a matter coming from the Amherst campus, Chairman 
Gordon said that it should be reviewed by Counsel Myers at the 
campus level and then by General Counsel Searson at the Office of 
the President. Mr. Broekhuizen said that in the case of the two 
votes proposed in the present document he would check the matter 
of state/non-state fund mixture with Counsel Myers prior to the 
meeting of the Board of Trustees. Upon motion made and seconded, 
it was

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

At the Chairman's request, Treasurer Johnson took up 
Tuition Waivers for Residence Hall Counselors (Doc. T75-016) . This 
matter had been considered earlier in the day at a meeting of the 
Committee on Student Affairs, with views provided both to that 
Committee and to the Finance Committee in a memorandum by President 
Wood dated August 13, 1974. The President noted that in June 1972 
the Board had approved a two-year trial program for undergraduate 
students serving as dormitory counselors to receive tuition waivers 
His memorandum reported that the two-year trial period had ended, 
and that Vice Chancellor Gage had requested a one-year extension 
to complete an evaluation of the program. It was President Wood's 
recommendation that the extension be granted on the condition that 
the entire review of tuition waiver policies be completed early in 
the winter semester of the academic year 1974-75. With knowledge 
that the Committee on Student Affairs had approved the recommenda- 
tion earlier in the day, and upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that the 
approval granted the Chancellor of the Amherst 
campus (Doc. T72-175) to offer a waiver of 
tuition at the undergraduate in-state rate to a 
maximum of 400 undergraduate residence hall 
counselors, or their equivalent, be extended 
for one year with the explicit understanding 
that a proposal for a tuition waiver policy for 
the Amherst campus will be developed during 
this time. 

Vice Chancellor Hamilton, at the invitation of Chairman 
Gordon, reviewed the proposal contained in Vivian Carolyn Savio 
Scholarship Fund (Doc. T75-021) . He described the wish of Mr. and 
Mrs. Ralph Savio to memorialize their late daughter, who had been 
a student at UM/Boston, through the establishment of this scholar- 
ship fund and possibly through other means. After appreciative 
discussion, and upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To accept with gratitude the gift of Ralph Savio 
and Marion Savio of one hundred (100) shares of 
common stock of the General Motors Corporation 
to establish the Vivian Carolyn Savio Scholar- 
ship Fund. This and other securities which may 
be added to the fund shall be held separate from 
the "pooled" Endowment funds of the University 
until January 1, 1985, at which time any change 
in the portfolio may be exercised at the dis- 
cretion of the Board of Trustees. 

The dividends/income alone will be used to assist 
one or more students each year with the individ- 
ual grant not to exceed the cost of tuition for a 
Massachusetts resident. Awards will be made to 
students registered at the University of Massachusetts

at Boston in accordance with the following 
provisions : 

1. Terms of Award : a cash scholarship (s) 
awarded in the Spring for the following 
year. 

2. Eligibility for Award : at the time of the 
award a student must be under 25 years of 
age; must have completed at least one 
semester at the University of Massachusetts 
at Boston with a minimum of 12 credit hours; 
and must have attained a 2.5 scholastic 
average. Preference for the award will be 
given to freshmen and sophomores. In the 
event a second award becomes available, 
consideration may then be given to deserving 
juniors. To be eligible, a freshman applicant 
need not have completed University course work 
in art, but must indicate interest or involve- 
ment in the field. Sophomore applicants must 
have completed at least two courses in art to 
be considered. 

3. Criteria for Award Selection : three criteria 
will prevail in the award selection: (1) 
general scholastic ability; (2) potential 
ability in art; (3) financial need. An 
application form appropriate for these 
criteria will be developed. 

4. Award Committee : to be determined by the 
voting membership of the Art Department as 
provided for in the departmental bylaws. 

Treasurer Johnson and Vice Chancellor Hamilton discussed 
briefly a need to secure a Change in Authorization to Sign Checks 
on the Boston Student Activities Trust Fund , which would recognize 
the availability of a Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs for such 
actions and would allow the Chancellor of UM/Boston greater 
flexibility in designating persons to complete transactions involv- 
ing this trust fund. After brief discussion and upon motion made 
and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that prior 
authorizations to sign checks, to make purchases 
from and sign agreements committing payments 
from the Student Activities Trust Fund/Boston are 
hereby rescinded and that Chancellor Golino is 
hereby authorized to designate, from time-to- 
time upon notice to the Treasurer of the

It was agreed that, in accordance with Chairman Gordon's 
suggestion, the October meeting of the Committee on Finance would 
be held on October 22, 1974, beginning with luncheon at noon and 
continuing through a detailed review of the portfolio, a review of

The meeting was called to order at 1:30 p.m. by Chairman 



Troy. 



The Chairman began with the proposed Appointment of Dr . 
George S. Odiorne as Professor of Management with Tenure and Dean 



of the School of Business Administration (Doc. T75-026), and invited 



Chancellor Bromery and Associate Provost Bischoff to comment on 
this matter. Associate Provost Bischoff described for the Committee 
the search conducted during academic year 1973-74 for suitable 
candidates for the position of Dean of the School of Business Admin- 
istration at UM/Amherst. He said that a Search Committee had been 
established representing the Chancellor, the School, the Student 
Senate, and the Faculty Senate, that it had conducted a national 
search, and had been sensitive to the requirements for Affirmative 
Action. The Search Committee first reduced the total number of 
candidates to six, invited these to the campus for interview, and 
then reduced the number of candidates to two. Finally, of these, 
Dr. Odiorne was settled upon by the Search Committee as the single 
best nomination it could make. Associate Provost Bischoff said 
that his office had reviewed Dr. Odiorne' s candidacy, had assessed 
its endorsement by the School of Business Administration, and had 
reported the candidacy favorably to Chancellor Bromery, who had 
then conveyed his own endorsement to President Wood. Chairman Troy 
questioned the advisability of a procedure which yielded only one 
candidate for consideration by the Chancellor and President. 
Associate Provost Bischoff replied that the Search Committee assertec 
they had no second choice to make in this instance. Chairman Troy 
questioned this point further with Chancellor Bromery, who said that

he had accepted the single recommendation, after interviewing 
Dr. Odiorne himself, because he desired a strong, active leader 
for the School and felt that Dr. Odiorne would be such a person. 
Chancellor Bromery indicated that if he had not so concluded, he 
would have disbanded the Search Committee and formed a new body 
to continue the search for a Dean. Chancellor Golino asked 
whether the charge to the Search Committee had been to come up 
with more than one candidate. Associate Provost Bischoff replied 
in the negative, but said that the Committee had been instructed 
to make a wide search and insure that a significant number of 
persons would actually be seen at the campus as candidates. Vice 
President Lynton, speaking for President Wood and himself, stressed 
the expectation of the University that search committees must be 
required to produce more than one nominee in order to afford the 
administration of the University an element of choice in the pro- 
cess of selecting senior academic administrative officers. 
Chairman Troy concurred in this emphasis, and asked why there were 
no letters of reference in the documentation of Dr. Odiorne' s 
candidacy. Associate Provost Bischoff replied that it was his 
custom not to rely principally on written letters of recommenda- 
tion, but instead to rely on telephone conversations, inquiring 
directly of references with regard to the qualifications of specific 
candidates for positions. He said that he had made a number of 
such calls in the case of Dr. Odiorne but had not utilized corre- 
spondence in the first instance. Chancellor Bromery added that 
letters supporting Dr. Odiorne' s candidacy were now in the process 
of being secured and would be added to the files to complete the 
record of the appointment. Upon motion made and seconded, it was

Chairman Troy then turned to the matter of Endorsement 
of Program Development at College IV, University of Massachusetts 
at Boston (Doc. T75-027). The Chairman noted that members of the 
Committee had received in advance of the meeting a document pre- 
pared by Dr. Richard M. Freeland, Dean of College IV, outlining a 
"Plan for Development, 1974-76" for this new College of the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts at Boston. He noted further that this plan- 
ning document with regard to the College of Professional Studies 
had been endorsed for favorable Trustee consideration by Vice

COMMITTEE

I 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Chancellor Spaethling, and by Vice President Lynton, and that their 
supportive statements were agreed to by Chancellor Golino and Presi- 
dent Wood. 

Chancellor Golino observed that he was pleased by the 
planning that had been accomplished by Dean Freeland thus far, that 
he enthusiastically supported the planning document presented by 
Dean Freeland, and that it was important in his judgment for early 
Trustee consideration to be accomplished in order to enable College 
IV to move forward securely towards its goal of opening in the 
fall of 1975. 

Chairman Troy asked Dean Freeland to review the planning 
document for the Committee. Dean Freeland expressed his apprecia- 
tion to the Committee and the Board for the opportunity to give 
leadership in developing College IV, and then spoke briefly on 
several points related to the development of College IV. He said 
that he would welcome questions about the planning document. 

Dean Freeland began by summarizing the history of College 
IV planning up to the present stage. He noted that in the Spring 
of 1973 the Boston campus had adopted a planning committee's recom- 
mendation that College IV be a College of Professional Studies 
offering degree programs in a variety of career areas. Five areas 
were identified as promising for development within the new College: 
Management, Urban Technology, Mass Communications, Planning and 
Urban Design, and Community Health. The campus recommendations were 
reviewed by the Board of Trustees in July 1973 and approved in 
principle, without approval for the specific programs suggested by 
the campus committee. The Board then authorized initiation of a 
search for a Dean who would be responsible for further development 
of the College. The ensuing search in academic year 1973-74 led 
to Dr. Freeland' s appointment as the College's first Dean. Dean 
Freeland emphasized that the campus committee, in its recommenda- 
tions, wished to increase the diversity of educational offerings 
available at UM/Boston, particularly through career-oriented pro- 
grams which would supplement and complement liberal arts in Colleges 
I and II. The committee, he said, conceptualized the College as 
ultimately offering a cluster of professional educational programs. 
Dean Freeland observed that the "cluster" concept reflected a 
unique curricular notion: to integrate a variety of undergraduate 
professional programs within a single administrative unit, rather 
than to offer them in separate professional schools. Dean Freeland 
emphasized that Management would be only the first of the programs 
to be developed within the cluster concept. 

Secondly, Dean Freeland spoke of reasons for beginning the 
programming of College IV with Management. One positive reason for 
this choice, he said, was national and local evidence of strong 
student interest in the field of Management. He said that a 
related second reason for beginning with Management had to do with 
evidence that career opportunities and employment possibilities

were and would remain relatively strong in this field, both in the 
Boston area's employment market and elsewhere. A third reason, 
Dean Freeland said, was that it would be an ideal building block 
for subsequent development of other programs of College IV. 
Fourth, he regarded Management studies as useful to students in 
other Colleges of UM/Boston, therefore strengthening the total 
educational offering of the campus. 

Dean Freeland next highlighted the meaning of the term 
Management as he is employing it in plans for the College. He 
noted that the Management program would incorporate curriculum 
elements from four fields: Business Administration, Public Admin- 
istration/Public Affairs, Management Sciences, and Planning. He 
emphasized that while all of these have grown from different 
beginnings, in recent years all four have converged toward a common 
body of knowledge and skills. He explained that this convergence 
would be reflected in a program integrated around certain concepts 
and skills. He said that he believed each of four fields could be 
strengthened in College IV curriculum by being developed within a 
program integrating all four. 

Fourth, Dean Freeland summarized how he proposes to pro- 
ceed in the planning year 1974-75 and in the College's first 
operational year, 1975-76. He said that he intended, if possible, 
to secure a core team of four senior persons by January 1975 to 
plan basic frameworks for a freshman year and a junior year related 
to the Management program emphasis. He said that he expects that 
by June, 1975 framework construction will have been completed, and 
that he will have recruited an additional faculty group of from 
8 to 10 persons who may work with the core team during the summer 
in order for course planning to be complete and ready at the fresh- 
man and junior levels for the beginning of Fall 1975. He 
indicated that the liberal arts program for College IV for 1975-76 
and 1976-77 would be conducted in cooperation with Colleges I 
and II, that approximately 500 students (freshman and transfer) 
would be admitted for Fall 1975, and that he would initiate this 
year planning for a liberal arts component in the College for 
implementation in 1977-78. During 1975-76, the College's first 
operational year, he said that short-term and long-term planning 
would continue, but that program implementation would be of the 
greatest importance. During that period, he would expect to 
develop detailed curriculum for at least one new program in 
addition to Management for implementation in 1976-77. 

Finally, Dean Freeland addressed briefly two other items 
of importance to the development of College IV. He analyzed cost 
comparisons between Management programs and those in the liberal 
arts, utilizing data both from other institutions and within UM/ 
Boston. He concluded that costs in the Management program of 
College IV would compare equitably or perhaps favorably with costs 
in the arts and sciences. In connection with inter-institutional 
cooperation, Dean Freeland said that consultation with other 



I 



COMMITTEE 



I 



I 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

institutions in the area offering programs in Management had been 
begun, with particular attention to programs in private institutions 
He said that he expected to continue such consultations, looking 
toward cooperation and possible collaboration, both with institu- 
tions in the public and private sectors. 

Chairman Troy asked whether there would be adequate 
physical facilities for the College of Professional Studies; Dean 
Freeland replied that facilities were to be located at the Harbor 
Campus, and that campus administration is attempting to satisfy 
space needs both for the planning year and for the first year of 
operation within existing facilities. Chancellor Golino added that 
it will be necessary to utilize space in Colleges 1 and II, but that 
he anticipated that the foundations for the new construction of a 
college building might be begun in the coming academic year. 

Vice President Lynton emphasized that he and President 
Wood endorsed the present planning of the College of Professional 
Studies. He said also that it is the President's intention to 
establish specific advisory and/or visiting committees with reference 
to Colleges III and IV at Boston and the School of Business Admin- 
istration at Amherst. In these cases, he said, the principal con- 
cern is that the University secure the best advice possible in 
structuring new and important undertakings. Vice President Lynton 
said that President Wood expected the advisory committee will report 
to the Chancellors involved directly and would represent a judicious 
mix of authoritative judgment both from within and outside the 
University. The President expects that an advisory committee with 
reference to College IV will be established by the end of October 
at the initiative of the Chancellor and with Vice President Lynton 
representing him in deliberations regarding the charge, composition, 
and calendar of the committee. 

Vice Chancellor Spaethling spoke in support of planning 
for College IV, saying that he hoped there could be close contact 
between the development of the Management program in College IV and 
the School of Business Administration at UM/Amherst, through its 
new Dean and Associate Provost Bischoff . Vice Chancellor Spaethling 
commented that regular communication between these two campuses and 
units would be beneficial, and that he and Dean Freeland in this 
regard had visited UM/Amherst in the previous week. The Vice 
Chancellor emphasized that Dean Freeland' s proposal did not call for 
planning a "professional school," but a "college" which combined a 
cluster of professional programs with liberal arts, and which would 
complement other colleges of UM/Boston. Vice Chancellor Spaethling 
said that he has undertaken to improve inter-college communication 
and student opportunities at UM/Boston. 

Dr. Bloomberg questioned beginning College IV with an 
emphasis on Management instead of an emphasis on Community Health; 
Dean Freeland replied that he views Management only as a beginning, 
with planning for Community Health educational programs to follow

soon after. Chancellor Bromery commented that he looks forward 
to a close relationship between Dean Freeland and Dean Odiorne. 
Mr. Callahan spoke with favor of the planning document presented 
by Dean Freeland. 

After further brief discussion, and upon motion made and 
seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that it 
endorse the planning of a Program in Manage- 
ment as a first step in the development of 
College IV, UM/Boston Harbor Campus. 

Vice President Lynton spoke briefly about certain per- 
sonnel decisions currently being faced by the University adminis- 
tration which present difficulties and require facing basic issues 
in procedure and the need simultaneously to deal with limited 
institutional growth and the maintenance and improvement of 
academic quality. He spoke in general terms of four cases of this 
kind, and said that more such cases might be expected in the future, 
Chancellor Golino commented that academic personnel procedures 
have not been clear and have been slow; Vice President Lynton 
agreed, but said that, where appeals procedures are invoked, per- 
sonnel decisions are almost inevitably slowed down. He discussed 
briefly the need for better-timed evaluation procedures with regard 
to tenure decisions. 

Chairman Troy emphasized that the Board expects and must 
have clear administrative procedures in personnel matters. 

There being no further business to come before the 
Committee, the meeting was adjourned at 3:10 p.m.

In the absence of the Chairman, the meeting was called to 
order at 11:05 a.m. by President Wood. 

A decision was made to postpone any discussion of the 
Committee calendar until such time as Chairman Knowles could be 
present. 

President Wood then informed the Committee that in dis- 
cussions with the Chancellors and with the Committee on the Budget, 
it had been concluded that the presentation of the capital outlay 
budget in conjunction with the maintenance budget would be extremely 
helpful in making the relationship between the two more evident and 
would clearly indicate discrepancies between the amount of capital 
outlay requested and the amount appropriated in response to the 
request . 

The President said that he is asking the Chancellors to 
review their capital requirements to this end and that this matter 
will be discussed by both the Buildings and Grounds and Budget 
Committees before coming to the Board of Trustees. 

The President informed the Committee that in February

Office to work with the campuses on certain key management con- 
cerns: (1) organization, under the guidance of Father Walsh; 
(2) purchasing, under the aegis of Treasurer Johnson, and (3) space 
utilization, under the direction of Vice President Robinson. 

At the request of the President, Mrs. Robinson reported 
that the space utilization task force was charged with assuring 
the preparation of appropriate space inventories and with reporting 
on classroom and laboratory utilization within the University. 
She noted that an analysis of space use should prove helpful in 
determining the capital budget, and that the Committee on Long- 
Range Planning is scheduled to discuss space planning in the spring, 

President Wood reviewed briefly the sequence of events 
which lead to an amended program for the physical education build- 
ing as outlined in An Amended Program Summary for Building 120 
(Physical Education) at the Harbor Campus (Doc. T75-025) . He 
stated that the Governor's support of this project and the 
Legislature's appropriation of $4,750,000 additional funds for this 
project had made possible the construction of a gymnasium, but on 
a substantially reduced scale from that originally planned. He 
indicated that two other buildings were high on the priority list 
for construction at UM/Boston: Building 030 ( College III) and 
Building 080/2 (the Arts and Science Building). 

Vice President Robinson explained that in the redesign 
of the physical education building, planning personnel had tried 
to maintain as much as possible the various sports programs 
originally planned despite the lower budget. Major reductions 
are being made in seating capacity, as well as reductions in 
office, locker, and laundry space. The sauna and the running track 
have been eliminated, and the main gymnasium has been slightly 
reduced in size. Circulation space has been substantially reduced 
and parking has been eliminated from the building. The reduced 
height of the new design will make it impossible to include it in 
the second level walkway system. 

Trustee Clark expressed concern that the reduction in 
program had not been discussed with community organizations, to 
which Assistant Chancellor Rawn replied that the changes made 
would not materially affect the athletic programs. He indicated 
that athletic spaces such as the creative and combative rooms 
have been kept as flexible as possible. 

Trustee Clark inquired whether there had been much 
community use of the physical education facilities already at the 
campus, and Mr. Rawn indicated that youths from both Columbia 
Point and Dorchester had participated in the activities sponsored 
in the evenings and on Saturdays during the academic year and in 
the summer activities. He noted that vandalism of the gym in 
College II toward the end of the academic year had necessitated 
suspension of activities there, but the swimming pool in College I

continues to have heavy use. 

Treasurer Johnson asked whether with the revised design 
it would still be possible to move from parking and plaza areas to 
the gymnasium, and Mrs. Robinson replied that the architects would 
be required to provide access to these areas and that they were 
studying various possible sites for this facility within the 
general project envelope. 

Trustee Pumphret expressed his endorsement of the amended 
plan. There being no further discussion, on motion made and 
seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees approval 
of the amended program for Building 120 
(physical education) as outlined in Trustee 
Document T75-025. 

President Wood next introduced the proposal for a Biology 
Departmental and Recreational Dock (Doc. T75-028) . Mr. Rawn 
informed the Committee that the dock is to be a minimal facility 
for use both by the Biology Department and for the recreational pro- 
gram. At Mr. Rawn's request, Mr. William Meehan, Director of Plan- 
ning and Development at UM/Boston, explained that in the original 
dredging that was done to supply water to the pump house, a basin 
had been formed which would be suitable for construction of a dock. 
This dock would aid the Biology Department in conducting their pro- 
jects on the offshore islands and funds for the facility could be 
made available from monies already appropriated for furniture and 
equipment in Phase I. Mr. Kenneth Childs, President of Childs 
Engineering Corporation, supplemented Mr. Meehan' s presentation by 
describing to the Committee how the dock would be designed, explain- 
ing that it would be constructed in four sections, which could be 
arranged to provide the most desirable surface area. The dock 
would be secured by piles but would float. 

Trustee Clark asked what security provisions were antic- 
ipated and Mr. Rawn replied that a gate would be provided to block 
unauthorized access from the land. He stated that it would be more 
difficult to prevent access from the water, but that the campus 
police would patrol the area. He said that some system for locking 
boats would also be required. In response to a question from the 
President, Mr. Meehan indicated that it would be desirable to begin 
work this fall in order to complete the project by spring. After 
further brief discussion, on motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that the 
working drawings for the Biology Departmental 
and Recreational Dock at the Harbor Campus, 
UM/Boston, be approved for construction as pro- 
posed in Trustee Document T75-028.

Progress Report 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

President Wood next invited Mr. Jack Littlefield, UM/ 
Amherst Planning Director, to bring the Committee up to date on the 
status of the various problems being encountered in the new Fine 
Arts Center. Mr. Littlefield reported that the sight line problems 
were being corrected to the extent possible by rearrangement of 
seats. He said that a second safety rail would be provided in the 
second balcony to give added protection and to help counteract the 
vertigo experienced by some people from this height. He indicated 
that he expected the Center to be in use for academic events some- 
time in October, but that because of the sewerage ban no public 
events would be scheduled without first obtaining clearance from 
the selectmen of the town of Amherst. 

The President then requested Mr. Littlefield to report 
briefly on general progress at UM/Amherst with regard to renova- 
tions and other improvements. Mr. Littlefield said that there had 
been very little money available for these purposes, but that the 
campus was working toward renovations which would satisfy the 
requirements of revised programs. He also indicated that existing 
parking and traffic facilities were being improved toward the day 
when the town street which runs through the campus can be closed 
without creating traffic problems. He also noted that the bus 
system had been initiated to reduce campus traffic and as the 
first step toward reducing the amount of parking in the core campus, 
with the goal of a pedestrian campus by 1980. 

President Wood asked Vice President Robinson to bring the 
Committee up to date on the progress of the site work at the 
Worcester campus. She informed the Committee that Ritchie Associ- 
ates and Campbell, Aldrich and Nulty were working on the first 
phase of the site development plans approved last summer. This 
phase includes parking and roadways for the medical school build- 
ings and for the emergency and outpatient areas of the hospital. 
Mrs. Robinson stated that funds are available only for a base 
coat for the parking areas and grading for the planting areas. 
It is hoped that by spring there will be 480 parking spaces 
available. 

Associate Dean Stockwell then reported on progress of 
work on the Teaching Hospital. He stated that he expected that 
the University could occupy the first two floors of the hospital 
by October and the main floor by November 15. 

With regard to student housing, Mr. Stockwell indicated 
that space for 33 students will be available on September 3., and 
that the space was fully rented. 

Mr. Stockwell reported that although there is still 
vibration in the boilers in the power plant, a study by a consul- 
tant in this field, Professor K. Tsutsumi, has indicated that the 
vibrations are well within acceptable standards for metal fatigue.

Mr. Stockwell indicated that there are problems to be 
resolved with the heating and ventilation system in the medical 
science building before final acceptance. Mr. Pumphret asked what 
protection the University has against poor performance of building 
systems if it accepts portions of the building of which those total 
systems are a part. Treasurer Johnson replied that the BBC cannot 
make final payment until the University accepts the building. 
However, unless a substantial amount is held back by the BBC, it is 
sometimes difficult to obtain satisfaction from various contractors. 

Trustee Clark remarked that she wished to congratulate the 
UM/Worcester campus for its initiative in developing a program in 
family practice, which is an innovative and much needed medical 
service. 

There being no further business to come before the 
Committee, the meeting was adjourned at 12:25 p.m.

The meeting was called to order at 11:00 a.m. by Trustee 
Croce, acting as Chairman in the absence of Trustee Healey. 

Acting Chairman Croce took up first Policies and Pro- 
cedures Relative to the Possession, Consumption, and Sale of 
Alcoholic Beverages at the University of Massachusetts at Boston 
(Doc. T75-015A) , and asked Trustee Shaler, Chairman of the Commit- 
tee on Student Affairs, for comment. Trustee Shaler explained that 
his Committee had considered at its meeting on August 20, 1974, the 
recommendations contained in the document and had approved them by 
vote, recommending their adoption by the Board of Trustees. 
Trustee Shaler said that the campus policy proposals relating to 
alcoholic beverages were consistent with the policy adopted by the 
Amherst campus with the exception of reference to residence halls 
and fraternities and sororities. Dr. Keith agreed, and upon motion 
made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that 
adoption and approval of the policies and 
procedures relative to the possession, con- 
sumption, and sale of alcoholic beverages at 
the University of Massachusetts at Boston, as 
set forth in Document T75-015A. 



COMMITTEE 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

At the Acting Chairman's request, President Wood briefly 
reviewed Mayor White's appeal for temporary space at 100 Arlington 
Street for use by the Boston Public Schools during the present 
transition period. He said that the University wished to be of 
whatever assistance it could to the Boston Public Schools, but at 
the same time needed to ensure the continued availability of space 
at 100 Arlington Street for University purposes. To seek an arrange- 
ment which would meet both of these requirements, President Wood 
had asked Chancellor Golino to discuss the matter with Boston school 
officials . 

Chancellor Golino explained to the Committee that tenta- 
tive agreement had been reached for approximately 450 ninth grade 
students from Brighton High School to use the sixth and seventh 
floors at 100 Arlington Street from September 12, 1974, to June 30, 
1975. He said that a clear verbal understanding existed that pre- 
sent planning by the University would not allow Boston School 
Department use of the space beyond the stated date. He said 
further that the City Corporation Counsel and the City Public 
Facilities Commission had verbally agreed to pay a minimum sum equal 
to $5.00 per square foot for services rendered. In addition, the 
Boston School Department will provide whatever furniture, equipment, 
and immediate renovation is required for purposes of the program. 
Chancellor Golino said that Counsel for the University and Counsel 
for the City are jointly drafting a formal agreement reflecting 
these understandings. He cautioned, however, that there is some 
evidence that the School Department's original estimates of numbers 
and program needs were too low, and said that he would insist on 
confining the operation to the sixth and seventh floors without 
exception. Trustee Troy asked whether there would be structural 
changes involved in the arrangement; Chancellor Golino said that 
there would be very few, that these would be done at the expense of 
the Boston School Department, and would be likely to be to the 
advantage of the University. Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board of Trustees authorize 
the Chancellor of the University of Massachusetts 
at Boston, or his designee, to negotiate an 
agreement with the City of Boston, or its designee, 
whereby for a period of time not extending beyond 
June 30, 1975, the sixth and seventh floors of 
the University's facilities at 100 Arlington Street, 
Boston, may be occupied and utilized by Brighton 
High School for the education of approximately 
five hundred students in return for a contribution 
to the costs of maintaining said facility. Further, 
that the Treasurer of the University, after con- 
sultation with the President, be empowered and 
authorized to execute an agreement on behalf of 
the University upon successful completion of said 
negotiations.

Acting Chairman Croce then recognized Trustee Savini, 
who asked the Executive Committee to consider establishing a 
regular arrangement for a graduate student representative to be 
present at Trustee deliberations. He introduced Mr. James Lindsey, 
President of the Graduate Student Senate, UM/ Amherst, who spoke in 
favor of such representation as a way of adding communication with 
graduate students to the Board's discussions. Mr. Lindsey said 
he believed this would be advantageous to the Board of Trustees, 
since many issues regarding graduate programs lie in the foresee- 
able future, and that it would be helpful for Trustees to have 
direct access to graduate student views on such issues. Trustee 
Shaler asked whether such representation was proposed in the form 
of Trustee status or in a form comparable to that occupied by pre- 
sent Faculty Representatives. Mr. Lindsey replied that he under- 
stood it would require legislative action to achieve Trustee status 
for a graduate student, and that the need could adequately be met 
simply by regular representation. Trustee Shaler suggested that 
this might be desirable and Trustee Pumphret agreed. Chancellor 
Golino said that he was in favor of graduate student representation 
but was concerned that, if an arrangement is established, it should 
include representation of graduate students at Boston and Worcester 
as well as at Amherst. Chancellor Soutter agreed, saying that the 
Medical School is developing recommendations of its own for faculty 
and student representatives to the Board of Trustees. Chancellor 
Bromery asked whether it might be possible to invite a representa- 
tive from the Graduate Student Senate in UM/Amherst to attend 
Board deliberations, while at the same time asking the Committee 
on Student Affairs to study the University-wide need and prepare 
recommendations in this regard for Board consideration at a later 
date. Mr. Lindsey, in response to a question by Trustee Troy, 
said that the Graduate Student Senate desired its President to 
serve as representative to the Board. Acting Chairman Croce said 
that the Committee on Student Affairs should be asked to develop a 
uniform arrangement during the present year. President Wood said 
that in the meantime he believed it would be desirable to invite 
the President of the Graduate Student Senate, UM/Amherst to be 
present at Trustee deliberations. Upon motion made and seconded, 
it was 

VOTED : To invite the President of the Graduate Student 

Senate, UM/Amherst, to attend Trustee deliberations 
during the present academic year, while the 
Committee on Student Affairs prepares recom- 
mendations with regard to a University-wide 
arrangement for graduate student representation 
to the Board of Trustees.

The meeting was called to order by Chairman Rowland at 



1:40 p.m. 



The Chairman asked Vice President Lynton to report on the 
first meeting of the Trustee Advisory Council on the Fine Arts to 
be held at UM/Amherst, Friday-Saturday, September 20-21, 1974. 
Dr. Lynton noted that the Friday dinner session would review the 
role of the Fine Arts departments in the educational program of 
the Amherst campus, that Saturday morning the Council would meet 
in small groups with departmental chairmen and faculty, and that 
afternoon business would include discussion with Director Steinway 
concerning the Fine Arts Center, its Inaugural Year, and University 
outreach in the fine arts. The Chairman expressed her hope that 
Trustees would find it possible to attend the Council sessions. 
She mentioned that Mr. Kevin Roche and Mr. John Dinkeloo, archi- 
tects of the Center, had been invited to participate in the meeting 

President Wood, at the Chairman's request, then intro- 
duced discussion of the Report of the New Directions Committee of 
UM/Boston. He observed that during its first year (1973-74) the 
Trustee Long-Range Planning Committee had accomplished an initial 
definition of its role, had studied possible enrollment patterns 
for UM/Boston, and had presented a recommendation in the latter 
regard which had been adopted by the Board of Trustees at its 
June, 1974 meeting. The New Directions Committee work had been

parallel to that of the Long-Range Planning Committee in some 
respects and after the work of the campus body was known, the Com- 
mittee considered its major themes as discussed with the Chancellor. 
However, the New Directions final report was received in July and 
some of the issues where principal responsibility lay with the 
President and Trustees had already been resolved. The President 
noted that he had forwarded the New Directions Committee Report to 
the Long-Range Planning Committee, and had asked Vice President 
Robinson and Mr. Cooley to review its recommendations. Papers 
reflecting their analysis were forwarded to the Long-Range Planning 
Committee in order to provide a basis for initial discussion of the 
New Directions recommendations. 

Chancellor Golino said that he had responsibility to see 
that the New Directions Report was considered by appropriate campus 
bodies, and later to report on the outcome of such consultation to 
this Committee and the Board. He expected the UM/Boston Assembly 
to begin consideration of the Report in the week of September 23, 
with the conclusion of discussion by the end of October. The 
Chancellor stated his belief that the substantive differences between 
Trustee views and those of the campus would not prove to be great. 
He said that he hoped there could be informal mutual consultation 
by the Long-Range Planning Committee, the Office of the President, 
and representatives of the New Directions Committee before positions 
become hardened on any differences that might exist with regard to 
matters raised by the Report. The Chairman said that such informal 
consultation could occur but that, if it did, it must be within an 
understanding that the Board of Trustees have final authority. 
Trustee Robertson said that he favored such informal mutual 
consultation. 

The President complimented the Long-Range Planning Com- 
mittee for extraordinarily valuable accomplishments in its first 
year, and said that he expected it to pursue further its mission 
this year. This will be assisted, he noted, by additional clarifi- 
cation of Trustee Committee boundaries and ways of working together 
cooperatively, and a continued effort to clarify ways in which the 
campuses, the Office of the President, and the Board of Trustees 
may best carry their appropriate responsibilities under governance 
policy and work well with each other. It was essential, he said, 
that in addition to engaging in mutual consultation, campus bodies 
recognize the divisions of responsibilities explicitly stated in 
the governance statement. 

The President then asked Mr. Cooley to review staff 
documents analyzing the New Directions Report. Mr. Cooley spoke 
of the Long-Range Planning Committee September 10, 1974, memorandum 
prepared by Vice President Robinson and his own memorandum of the 
same date. The first of these memoranda discussed the substantive 
congruence between the Report's recommendations and the enrollment

policy statement and guidelines of the Trustees. The second 
memorandum addressed programmatic implications of enrollment 
patterns and commented on each of the New Directions thirty-three 
recommendations. Mr. Cooley expressed concern with those recom- 
mendations which appear to establish specific enrollment goals or 
quotas based on student characteristics. He pointed to the admin- 
istrative difficulties involved where admission criteria are based 
on hierarchical and interrelated sets of student characteristics. 
He questioned also whether the socio-economic distribution of the 
applicant population at UM/Boston would be the same as the general 
population given a UM/Boston objective to serve lower and middle 
income groups. 

Trustees discussed at length several aspects of the 
analysis and the Report, in particular those relating directly or 
indirectly to student support services, including academic and 
other counseling and remedial training. It was suggested that the 
Student Affairs Committee be asked to review the implementation 
of the Gage Report recommendations adopted by the Board in 1973. 

The Chairman asked Mr. Cooley for further comments on 
the relationship between enrollment planning and admissions pro- 
cedures since there appeared some confusion in campus discussions. 
Mr. Cooley indicated that the two activities were related and com- 
plementary. As a function of University administration, enrollment 
planning involves the analysis of population and enrollment trends 
and the establishment of campus enrollment goals and student mix 
patterns consistent with these trends. Once enrollment parameters 
are established, the campuses have the responsibility to develop 
appropriate admission procedures consistent with the goals, 
establish academic criteria, assure conformance thereto, and admin- 
ister the admission process. Chancellor Golino indicated that there 
was no real misunderstanding of this relationship on the campus, 
and that he had established a UM/Boston Board of Admissions to 
clarify admission procedures and criteria. 

Vice President Robinson, at the request of the Chairman, 
spoke to a list of possible agenda items for the Committee on 
Long-Range Planning during the present academic year. She mentioned 
consideration of enrollment planning, UM/Amherst; examination of 
UM/Worcester ' s future planning when the Crispell Committee report 
becomes available; consideration of the College of Professional 
Studies, UM/Boston, in terms of its resource demands, rate of 
growth, and relationship to the College of Community and Public 
Service; consideration of five-year personnel plans being formu- 
lated by the campuses; the question of maintaining flexibility 
without growth; and the subject of capital outlay planning, con- 
sidered in conjunction with other Trustee Committees.

COMMITTEE

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



On the matter of the College of Professional Studies, 
Chancellor Golino said that he wanted to be clear that, as a result 
of the September Board meeting, there existed a mandate to proceed 
with development of a Program in Management. He said further, 
however, that he and Dean Freeland would welcome an opportunity to 
review that Program's planning with the Committee and would 
appreciate consideration of other program proposals of the College 
now in an early formative stage. 

On the matter of capital outlay planning, the President 
agreed that this would be an appropriate matter for Committee con- 
sideration. He observed that a new era had begun in capital 
outlay, not involving expansion, but requiring attention to con- 
serving, renewing, and reallocating facilities, and that, while this 
need exists most prominently at UM/Amherst, it will come to include 
UM/Boston and even UM/Worcester . 

There being no further business to come before the 
Committee, the meeting was adjourned at 3:30 p.m.

The meeting was called to order by Chairman Troy at 
10:05 a.m. 

The Chairman commented that for some time the Trustees 
and the President had maintained a moratorium on the approval of 
new graduate programs in order to insure that the planning and 
development of any additional programs in a period of slow Univer- 
sity growth would be carefully considered. He invited Vice 
President Lynton to comment on the status of graduate program 
development, with particular reference to matters before the 
Committee at this meeting. 

Vice President Lynton responded that UM/Amherst, under 
Vice Chancellor and Provost Gluckstern had undertaken a very 
important campus-wide review of graduate programs, looking toward 
the establishment of comparative criteria and guidelines which 
would be of use in considering questions of long-term graduate 
education programming. The Vice President said that the task 
force involved had not completed preparation of such criteria 
guidelines, and that the establishment of any new graduate programs 
on the campus will await conclusion of the report. Dr. Lynton 
commented that the two proposals before the Committee at the pre- 
sent meeting did not fall under this injunction, since they dealt 
with programs long under consideration and development. He said 
that both proposals appeared to him to be soundly based, 
deserving favorable action by the Committee. Vice Chancellor 
Gluckstern added that the task force mentioned by Vice President

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Lynton was seeking to determine relative campus priorities in 
graduate education, with a special reference to faculty capabilities 
space and facilities, student interest, manpower demands, and the 
possibility of overlap with offerings at other institutions. He 
said that the proposals presently before the Committee had been 
screened against such considerations and were supported by the 
campus administration. President Wood observed that the two present 
proposals, in his judgment, deserved approval, but he emphasized 
as he had done on the previous day at the UM/Amherst Faculty Senate 
meeting that a major order of business during the present academic 
year must be thorough-going review and evaluation of graduate pro- 
gram offerings. Chairman Troy agreed, indicating the desire of the 
Trustees to have clear guidelines and standards to assist them in 
considering graduate program proposals. 

Chairman Troy then called for specific consideration of 
the Proposed Master of Science Degree in Manufacturing Engineering 
(Doc. T75-029) , and invited Dean Picha to comment on this proposal. 
The latter said that program planning in this regard had begun 
seven years previously, principally under the leadership of Prof. 
Boothroyd, whom he asked to speak on behalf of the proposal. Prof. 
Boothroyd noted that the proposed program drew from and combined 
elements both of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, with special 
application to the needs of manufacturing. He said that, while 
this kind of program is common in England and in Europe, where it 
has long been seen as needed, its appearance is of more recent date 
in the United States. Prof. Boothroyd stated that there is increas- 
ing recognition by those in manufacturing that such graduate prep- 
aration is important, and that, as a result, there are approximately 
30 such graduate programs in the United States now. Prof. Boothroyd 
further commented that the program of UM/Amherst would require no 
additional faculty, would currently attract approximately 10 graduate 
students, had been developed in response to expressed industrial 
interest, and had been successful in attracting funds from the 
National Science Foundation to assist in its initiation. 

In response to a question from Chairman Troy, Prof. 
Boothroyd defined Manufacturing Engineering as engineering 
specifically related to manufacturing techniques broadly conceived, 
as including not only technical problems, but those associated with 
human factors, with the man-machine interface, and other manifold 
aspects of the complex processes of manufacturing. Chairman Troy 
asked further whether the Master of Science degree in this field 
was necessary; Prof. Boothroyd responded that Master's level prep- 
aration in Manufacturing Engineering provides students with a 
quality of specialization relevant to industrial needs and employ- 
ment possibilities well beyond what can be gained through under- 
graduate study. Prof. Boothroyd, again in response to a question 
from Chairman Troy, said that the faculty involved in the program, 
whether trained as mechanical or industrial engineers, are 
particularly qualified to conduct an integrated program in

seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board of Trustees approve 
the graduate program leading to a Master of 
Science Degree in Manufacturing Engineering, as 
outlined in Trustee Document T75-029, and submit 
said proposal to the Board of Higher Education 
for its review and approval, to be implemented 
in September, 1975. 

Chairman Troy then asked for consideration of the Pro- 
posed Master of Science Degree in Hotel, Restaurant and Travel 
Administration (Doc. T75-030) . He invited Prof. Fletcher to speak 
in this regard, representing the UM/Amherst Department of Hotel, 
Restaurant and Travel Administration. Prof. Fletcher noted that 
the documentation with regard to the proposal reflected program 
development over a period of approximately four years at the 
Amherst campus. He observed that presently there are 41 four-year 
colleges in the United States offering such programs as that pro- 
posed, and that there are some 600 related programs in community 
colleges across the nation. Prof. Fletcher said that, while this 
was the case, there were only three or four graduate level programs 
in the field in the country. He noted that, in the case of UM/ 
Amherst, the proposal had been developed in close cooperation with 
the School of Business Administration, that it arose in response 
to demand from both students and from the hospitality industry, and 
that — while many students applied for admission — enrollment would 
be limited to approximately 15 students. Prof. Fletcher commented 
that UM/Amherst is approached frequently by industries seeking such 
graduates; in response to a query by Mr. Callahan, he noted that 
inquiries within the past week had been received from the following 
companies: Saga, ARA, and Sheraton. 

Acting Dean Conlon of the School of Business Administra- 
tion spoke in further support of the proposal, saying that it grew 
in part out of Business School joint initiatives with other units 
of the campus. He said that the School is happy to participate in 
the design of programs that involve business or management educa- 
tion elsewhere on the campus rather than see mini-schools of 
business proliferate unassociated with the School itself. Chairman 
Troy asked what would be intrinsic to the program that would not 
be found in a similar program at the bachelor's level. Prof. 
Fletcher replied that the graduate program placed significantly 
more emphasis on quantitative approaches, decision-making, and 
specialization beyond what was possible at the bachelor's level. 
In response to a further query from Chairman Troy, Prof. Fletcher 
stated that the industry concerned wants employees who can exhibit 
a command both of general principles of management and the skills 
and capabilities relevant to specialized experience and training.

Trustee Savini recommended revision of the next-to-last 
sentence on page 16 of the Program Proposal to read "Moreover, there 
is currently a Campus Center Board of Governors' Task Force working 
out arrangements which will enable the program to utilize the 
extensive facilities now available in the Murray d. Lincoln Campus 
Center." Chairman Troy expressed his belief that it was not neces- 
sary to consider or approve the proposal document sentence by 
sentence or subject it to detailed amendment, but that Trustee 
Savini' s point might be taken into account as a matter of under- 
standing with regard to the proposal as a whole. Trustee Savini 
agreed. In further discussion, Prof. Fletcher noted excellent 
cooperation with community colleges which made for compatibility 
between their offerings and those of the University and that the 
emergence of master's level programs in this field represented a 
maturing need in the industry to which Cornell, Michigan State, and 
Florida International University have been responsive. He expressed 
his belief that UM/Amherst is uniquely capable of valuable response 
to such a need. Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board of Trustees approve 
the Graduate Program leading to the Degree of 
Master of Science in Hotel, Restaurant and 
Travel Administration to be offered jointly by 
the Department of Hotel, Restaurant and Travel 
Administration and the School of Business 
Administration, as outlined in Trustee Document 
T75-030, and submit said proposal to the Board 
of Higher Education for its review and approval, 
to be implemented in September, 1975. 

In reply to a question by Chairman Troy, Vice President 
Lynton said that no action would be proposed before the Committee 
in connection with a lease of apartment facilities in New York City 
for student interns in the Outreach Program. 

Vice Chancellor Gluckstern then, at the request of the 
Chairman, presented and briefly discussed Graduation Lists — 
September 1, 1974; Undergraduate, Graduate, Continuing Education 
(Doc. T75-032) . Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board of Trustees approve 
and ratify the Graduation Lists of September 1, 
1974, UM/Amherst, as certified by the University 
Recorder and contained in Document T7 5-032. 

President Wood next reported briefly on the September 23, 
1974, meeting of the presidents of the six New England Land-Grant 
Institutions. He said that the six presidents remain closely in 
touch with each other, sharing information and views. He observed 
that the Joint Operation Committee of the group has undertaken 
usefully a review of graduate programs in these institutions 
including particular attention to international studies, has

assisted in consideration of needs in veterinary education, and 
other matters. The President said that less progress had been 
made in consideration of the possibilities of "open university" 
activities within the region. His discussion closed with a brief 
report on the status of athletic policy discussion within the 
Yankee Conference. 

Vice President Lynton reported briefly on the first 
meeting of the Trustee Fine Arts Council, on forthcoming five-year 
personnel plans expected from the campuses which will require 
consideration by the Committee, and on the initiation of the Ad 
Hoc Multi-Campus Committee on Personnel Planning. 

Chairman Troy closed by emphasizing his expectation that 
the Committee would receive a report from the campuses at its 
next meeting relative to faculty contact hours with students. 

There being no further business, the meeting was

The meeting was called to order at 2:10 p.m. by Chairman 
Pumphret. At the request of the Chairman, Budget Director Garten- 
berg introduced the subject of the FY 1976 Maintenance Budget 
Request, reporting that the draft document which had been forwarded 
to the Trustee Committee on the Budget had also been distributed to 
the Multi-campus Budget Committee. He stated that the final budget 
document would incorporate changes suggested by both Committees. 

Chairman Pumphret commented that the approach to the 
budget presentation was excellent, but that in some instances he 
felt it was repetitious. He said that he was favorably impressed 
by the statement regarding the decision which had been made to 
stabilize growth and by the minimal increase in personnel at UM/ 
Amherst. He emphasized the importance of the President's statement 
and indicated he felt that showing figures on a University-wide 
basis would make the statement more effective. 

At the request of the Chairman, President Wood commented 
as follows: He emphasized that the budget process involves not only 
the campuses, the University administration and the Trustees, but 
various departments of the Commonwealth and that it is , J therefore, 
extremely important that all information presented be as clear and 
concise as possible. Chairman Pumphret stressed the importance of

showing the impact of inflation on the budget, which was responsi- 
ble for nearly half of the requested increase, and recommended 
that this item be included in the statement by the President, rather 
than treated individually by the campuses. Trustee Carlson sug- 
gested that the inflation factor could be indicated more clearly 
by means of a chart, which could be included as a part of the 
President's statement. 

President Wood stated that a second important item 
reflected in the budget was the restraint on growth, and he men- 
tioned that problems were entailed in trying to be innovative and 
reflect change while maintaining a stable enrollment. He also 
stated the importance of clearly indicating how enrollment figures 
were derived, e.g., whether these figures reflected full-time or 
part-time students and how these enrollment mixes could be 
adjusted to meet the aims of the various campuses. He stated that 
the 15:1 ratio of students to faculty had been used as the best 
available means of making budget determinations. The President 
also called attention to the fact that enrollment growth at DM/ 
Boston was confined to Colleges III and IV. With regard to UM/ 
Worcester, he stressed the importance of keeping the budget for the 
Teaching Hospital separate from the ordinary University activities, 
in order that the needs of the Hospital did not impinge on 
activities of the other two campuses. 

Chairman Pumphret pointed out that consideration of the 
Teaching Hospital budget with that of the University as a whole 
distorted the costs and made it impossible to make comparisons of 
the University Medical School with other medical schools in the 
country. He also indicated his belief that it would be better to 
set up a budget for the Hospital at the beginning of operation 
rather than to wait . 

President Wood stated that the FY 1976 budget request 
had been a collaborative effort of the campuses and the University 
administration and that much effort had been applied by both the 
campuses and the administration to keep costs down. 



Dr. Gartenberg explained that the document which the 
Committee had before it was a summary document with emphasis on 
campus programs. He also stated that this year the University 
would be required to complete and forward to the Governor's Office 
by October 15 a set of forms giving information on specified items 
President Wood also informed the Committee that this year the 
budget testimony before the Secretary would be open to the public. 

Chancellor Bromery asked if it would not be helpful to 
supplement budget projections with appendices which would explain 
how the dollar figures had been obtained. Trustee Troy felt that 
the document could be condensed and asked for clarification on 
several items. He asked particularly about the current status of

the various proposals for the provision of graduate education in 
veterinary medicine. President Wood replied that the New England 
Board of Higher Education and the Association of Land-Grant Colleges 
in New England had both done studies on this matter and that money 
was provided in the University budget for study of this subject. 
He also asked for and received clarification on questions concerning 
the publications and management systems programs. President Wood 
explained that the aim was to hav e publications reflect University- 
wide views and not otherwise to interfere with campus publications. 
Dr. Gulko explained the function of the management systems program 
being planned. 

Chancellor Golino called attention to the UM/Boston 
request for funds for staffing the day-care center, an important 
function for the type of student clientele which the Boston campus 
serves. He also emphasized the importance of the tutoring capability 
at UM/Boston. 

The matter of allotting funds for the purpose of merit 
increases was discussed, particularly with regard to its impact on 
faculty morale. Treasurer Johnson and Chancellor Bromery both 
emphasized that the 4 percent used in the budget was really a much 
smaller percentage, since it did not apply to all salaries or to the 
entire fiscal year. Both Chancellor Bromery and Vice Chancellor 
and Provost Gluckstern expressed their firm beliefs that merit 
increases were not only justified but were particularly important to 
the younger members of the faculty. 

Turning to the subject of the cost of utilities, Chairman 
Pumphret inquired if this matter would be treated on a University- 
wide basis. Trustee Carlson added that this item could be more 
forcefully presented by means of a chart indicating the inflation 
factor. Chairman Pumphret also suggested that greater emphasis be 
given to the leveling off of enrollment at UM/Amherst. 

Chairman Pumphret next raised several questions with 
regard to the staffing and heating of the teaching hospital at UM/ 
Worcester, to which Mr. Stockwell replied. After discusssion of 
various items in the UM/Worcester budget, discussion was terminated 
and on motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board of Trustees approve 
the Maintenance Budget Request for Fiscal Year 
1976. 

Since the formal budget submission date set by the 
Executive Office of Administration and Finance is October 15, 1974, 
and since formal approval of a Teaching Hospital budget must await 
a comprehensive review of hospital expenditure and revenue projec- 
tions, which will take place at the November Trustee meeting, it

The meeting was called to order by Chairman Healey at 
11:00 a.m. 

The Chairman asked President Wood to bring forward matters 
requiring Executive Committee attention. President Wood introduced 
first for brief discussion the Maintenance Budget Request for FY 
1976 (Doc. T75-033) , which had been considered and approved by the 
Trustee Budget Committee and was ready for presentation to the full 
Board. The President noted that the request amounts to a total of 
over $118,000,000, a 16.5 percent increase over anticipated FY 1975 
expenditures. He commented that nearly half of the requested increase 
in funding is needed to keep up with cost increases associated with 
inflation, and that these pressures had contributed to a decision 
to request no additional budgeted enrollment and faculty for 
academic programs except those of Colleges III and IV at UM/Boston. 
President Wood said that a separate budget was required for the new 
Teaching Hospital, for which the Trustees would be asked to establish 
a ceiling at the meeting of the current date, with a detailed budget 
to follow at the November meeting of the Board. The President said 
that any new programs in the coming fiscal year would require 
reallocation of resources in existing programs. He observed that 
the FY 1976 Maintenance Budget Request had been achieved without 
a presidential ceiling, but by a participatory process in which the 
campuses had helped to reduce proposals from an initial proposal of

$137,000,000 to the present $118,000,000. President Wood said 
that while the $118,000,000 total is minimal, securing its 
approval by the Executive Branch and Legislature will be a 
difficult task. 

President Wood then focused on matters involving the 
completion, opening, and operation of the UM/Worcester Teaching 
Hospital. He commented that, on the basis of earlier projections, 
it had been assumed that a Teaching Hospital would eventually 
become self-supporting; this, he said, turns out to be difficult 
to assure. President Wood stated that, in the present formative 
stage, it is impossible to determine with accuracy what the future 
patient load and income level of the Teaching Hospital will be, 
and that the budgetary planning for the Teaching Hospital neces- 
sarily must reflect this lack of certainty. If the Teaching 
Hospital should emphasize income-producing specialties, he said, 
this could raise serious questions about the larger role of the 
hospital with regard to public service, area health care, and the 
stress on community and family practice in the educational program 
of the Medical School. Without a deliberate emphasis on income- 
producing specialties, President Wood said he was not sure the 
University would be able to defend the Teaching Hospital as a fully 
self-supporting enterprise in the long run. Trustee Pumphret 
agreed, saying that he foresees a probable continuing need for 
support of the Teaching Hospital, and that it would be better to 
err on the side of budgetary conservatism rather than promise too 
much. Chairman Healey agreed. 

President Wood reported on his most recent meeting with 
the Crispell Committee, which is advising on future planning and 
development of the Medical School and Teaching Hospital at UM/ 
Worcester. He said that he had asked the Committee whether it is 
appropriate to plan to open the Teaching Hospital on July 1, 1975, 
and that the Committee had answered that such an opening date is 
absolutely essential if the Medical School and Teaching Hospital 
are to have desired professional good standing and credibility. 
The Committee, according to President Wood, emphasized that the 
opening date can be achieved only by a strenuous effort to meet 
immediate needs for facilities, equipment, adequate professional 
faculty, and staffing. The President said that he had therefore 
concluded special steps are needed now to assure without question 
that such needs will be met within the time frame fixed by the 
July 1 opening date. Specifically, President Wood reported his 
conclusions that it is necessary to establish the post of Chief 
of Staff of the Teaching Hospital to provide maximum concentrated 
attention to the tasks involved. He reported that he had dis- 
cussed this conclusion with Chairman Healey, Trustee Croce, and 
Chancellor Soutter, and that Dr. H. Brownell Wheeler of the Medical 
School faculty would consider assuming the position of Chief of 
Staff of the Teaching Hospital. President Wood stated that the 
Chief of Staff will report through the Chancellor but will have 
regular staff contacts with the Office of the President as well. 



COMMITTEE 






UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Arrangements with regard to this appointment, he said, were 
specified in a letter he had prepared for Chancellor Soutter. 



Discussion followed in which Trustee Croce stressed 
that the Crispell Committee, of which he is a member, believes 
strongly that there should be no compromise with the planned opening 
date of July 1. Chancellor Soutter agreed. Trustee Gordon and 
Chairman Healey commented not only on questions concerning the 
relationship of the Teaching Hospital to hospitals in Worcester and 
Boston, but on questions regarding the program policies of the 
Teaching Hospital itself. Chairman Healey emphasized the impor- 
tance of clarity about basic program policies in order to make 
intelligent decisions about equipping and further developing the 
Teaching Hospital, and Trustee Gordon suggested that it would be 
useful to rely upon the Crispell Committee for recommendations with 
regard to policy. 

Trustee Croce said that the Crispell Committee is aware 
of the relational, program policy, and technical problems faced 
by the Teaching Hospital and is working upon them. He noted that, 
with inflation, all of the hospitals in the area feel threatened 
financially, and that there is some feeling that institutions in 
the Worcester area have not been consulted well enough or given 
satisfactory participation in planning the role of the Teaching 
Hospital. According to Trustee Croce, the Crispell Committee felt 
the Teaching Hospital's credibility or communications gap could be 
corrected through establishment of a consortium of hospitals in the 
Worcester area in which the Teaching Hospital would play a part, 
and that the necessary opening date could be met by systematic as 
well as forceful work of a special task force which would be headed 
by the Chief of Staff noted by the President. 

Further discussion ensued in which relationships between 
the public and private sectors were considered in connection with 
the new Teaching Hospital. Chairman Healey emphasized his view that 
the University must determine what it can add to what exists, at 
least cost, with best quality, and without redundancy. A Chief of 
Staff of the hospital would need, Chairman Healey said, articulated, 
well-formulated policy on which to proceed in equipping the Teaching 
Hospital and bringing it into operation. Trustee Rowland agreed, 
commenting both that she supported the establishment of the position 
of Chief of Staff and the necessity for the person in that position 
to be fully and clearly mandated with regard to the University's 
desires for the Teaching Hospital. 

President Wood, speaking of all of the issues involved, 
reported that steps had been taken to form a consortium of hospitals 
in the Worcester area in which the Teaching Hospital would be a 
part, that he believes it is time to ask for an interim report 
from the Crispell Committee to the Executive Committee, that he 
urged endorsement of the establishment of the post of Chief of Staff,

and that he believed a coherent policy statement with regard to 
the Teaching Hospital should be formulated and approved by the 
Board of Trustees prior to January 1975. After further discussion, 
upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED ; To endorse the action of the President in 
establishing the post of Chief of Staff of 
the Teaching Hospital, which Dr. H. Brownell 
Wheeler of UM/Worcester Medical School Faculty 
will be asked to fill, specifically charged to 
give direction by working group or other appro- 
priate means, to completion of tasks necessary 
for the opening of the Hospital on July 1, 1975, 
and its operation thereafter, maintaining the 
established line relationship to the Chancellor, 
UM/Worcester, and in a close staff informational 
relationship with the Office of the President. 
On the basis of the actions taken in connection 
with the opening of the Hospital, the Executive 
Committee intends to recommend to the Board of 
Trustees a policy statement respecting the 
objectives and programs of the Hospital with 
respect to its service to the State and its 
relationships within the Worcester community. 

Chancellor Golino spoke briefly to the Executive Committee, 
as did Vice Chancellor Hamilton, concerning the desire of counsel 
for Local 576 to be heard by the Board. It was agreed by the 
Executive Committee that it would not be appropriate for the Board 
to hear directly from union counsel at the present stage of nego- 
tiations between the union and UM/Boston, since the negotiations 
were still appropriately being carried forward at the administra- 
tive level. 

Chancellor Soutter briefly called the attention of the 
Executive Committee to the possibility that a principal cardiac 
surgeon in the Boston area might be attracted to an appointment at 
UM/Worcester if his salary and other requirements can be met. 
Chairman Healey commented that the Executive Committee was not 
prepared to act on such a proposal at the current meeting, and 
President Wood suggested early consideration of the possibility 
by the Committee on Faculty and Educational Policy. Trustee Troy 
stated that he would try to have that Committee give consideration 
to the proposal at an early date. 

At 12.05 p.m., with the consent of the Committee, 
Chairman Healey called the body into Executive Session, with only 
Trustees, Chancellor Bromery, and Secretary Patterson remaining 
present .

The meeting was called to order at 10:00 a.m. by 
Chairman Troy. 

At the Chairman's request, Assistant Vice President 
Wolfman described the University's progress on compliance with 
Faculty Workload Legislation. Reviewing the history, Mrs. Wolfman 
said that the General Court last spring passed legislation which 
requires each faculty member to spend weekly in direct instructional, 
contact with students in classroom, laboratory, or clinical setting, 
an average — unless otherwise established by the Board of Trustees — 
of nine hours in undergraduate or six hours in graduate programs. 
The legislation mandates a compliance report from each segment of 
public higher education. The date for that report, originally 
set for November, has now been postponed until after the Board 
meeting on December 4. 

Vice President Lynton and a Task Force which includes 
Vice Chancellors Gluckstern and Spaethling and other campus repre- 
sentatives began last summer to review a survey instrument and 
guidelines. These have now been distributed on both campuses and 



I 



I 



COMMITTEE 



I 



I 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

will be completed by the faculty before the end of October. The 
Task Force will compile the data and prepare a comprehensive report 
for Board certification. 

The substantive issues raised by the guidelines include 
the definitions of contact hours, classroom, laboratory and clinical 
settings, and the establishment of contact hour instructional 
equivalencies that can be applied across the various disciplines 
and professions and that accurately reflect faculty instructional 
activity. It was emphasized that while the current instrument is 
designed to meet the requirements in the legislation for contact 
hour information, this is not the first attempt to measure or 
describe faculty activity. Dr. Gluckstern noted that the results 
should be "credible," that is they should reflect a reasonable 
picture of faculty load. If they do not, the guidelines will need 
to be refined. 

Vice Chancellors Gluckstern and Spaethling and Professors 
Fletcher and Gagnon spoke to the concern among the faculty that the 
time constraints precluded adequate faculty input to the develop- 
ment of the definitions and equivalencies. The current effort will 
therefore be considered on both campuses as a first step in a longer 
term process which will allow greater and more systematic faculty 
participation. A second concern is that the final report submitted 
by the Legislature to the General Court include not only quantita- 
tive data on contact hours but also an accurate description of the 
full nature of faculty responsibilities and workload — "forcefully" 
defended by the Board. Chancellor Golino noted that the inappro- 
priateness of a simple contact hour computation will be clearly 
exemplified in College III where the innovative nature of the pro- 
gram features "out of classroom" faculty-student contact. 

President Wood observed that discussion of the format and 
contents of the final report will be continued after the data is 
compiled but said that it will be important to insure that the 
aggregate University data is not used comparatively with other 
segments of public higher education. The discussion was completed 
with the note that the related issue of calendar is not currently 
under scrutiny in the legislature but should be an anticipated 
issue of University concern. 

At the request of the Chairman, Vice Chancellor Spaethling 
and Professor Torto presented the proposal to change the name of 
the Department of Economics in College II to the Department of 
Political Economy. Dr. Spaethling said that the Department of 
Economics has gradually shifted in emphasis over the past few years 
and the name change to the Department of Political Economy more 
closely matches that department's current academic focus. He pointec 
out that there are currently three economics departments at Boston. 
College I emphasizes the traditional and theoretical approach to 
the study of economics. College III offers a certificate in

Political Economy and stresses a more descriptive and pragmatic 
approach. College II which originally offered a theory-based 
curriculum similar to that of College I, has shifted to a combined 
theoretical and pragmatic approach. Professor Torto added that the 
Department in College II is concerned with teaching economic theory 
but that it recognizes within its curriculum the institutional and 
political constraints on the operation of economic theory. 
President Wood mentioned the Germanic source — dating back to 
Max Weber — of the study of political economy and added that the 
central focus is the mix of institutional, policy, and economic 
consideration. He recommended the Encyclopedia of Social Sciences 
for further reference on the subject. 

Dr. Spaethling mentioned that the proposed name change 
has been endorsed by the economics departments in the other 
colleges and that an adverse impact on enrollments is not antici- 
pated. Chancellor Golino stressed that the change reflects a 
desired curricular development at UM/Boston that provides curricular 
options within the various disciplines among the colleges. He

Upon motion made and seconded, it was accordingly 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees approval 
of the name change of the Economics Department , 
College II, University of Massachusetts at 
Boston, to the Department of Political Economy. 

Chairman Troy asked Dr. Clark to speak to the proposed 
appointments of Dr. John J. Collins and Dr. Charles Regan. Dr. 
Clark said that both Dr. Collins and Dr. Regan will contribute 
significantly to the instructional program and the development of 
the Teaching Hospital. Both are leaders in their respective 
fields of Thoracic and Cardiac Surgery and Ophthalmology and both 
would bring large referral practices. With reference to Dr. 
Collins, Dr. Clark mentioned that he has expressed a strong inter- 
est in coming to the University and that the $90,000 total compen- 
sation will not reflect an increase over his current earnings. 
The components of his salary are not yet finalized pending 
completion of the Group Practice Plan regulations. 

Vice President Edelman described the progress on the 
regulations being developed in connection with the Group Practice 
Plan. He said that the major issue is to strike the appropriate 
balance between teaching and practice in providing compensation 
for medical faculty. He noted that Dr. Collins represents one of 
a "handful" of high income persons coming under the plan but 
stressed that the compensation of such persons represents only a 
small percentage of their total billings. Mr. Edelman said that 
the rules and regulations will be ready for Trustee review within 
the next month.

Chairman Troy inquired as to the status of departments at 
Worcester as the Regan appointment carries with it the title of 
Chairman of the Department of Ophthalmology and Dr. Collins would 
be Chairman of Thoracic and Cardiac Surgery. Dr. Clark pointed out 
that "department" in this sense is a component within the Division 
of Surgery anticipated in the original medical school plan but not 
strictly analogous to a Department in the sense used at Amherst and 
Boston. Chairman Troy requested that Vice President Lynton and 
Dean Soutter prepare for Board approval a description of the current 
and anticipated academic divisions and departments at the Worcester 
campus. Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED ; To recommend to the Board of Trustees that it 
concur in the appointment by the President of 
Dr. Charles D. J. Regan as Professor of 
Ophthalmology with tenure at the University of 
Massachusetts at Worcester, effective January 1, 
1975; total compensation to be $65,000 per 
annum to be determined in accordance with the 
Rules and Regulations of the Group Practice Plan 
when approved by the Board of Trustees, and the 
components of said total compensation to be 
approved thereafter by the Board of Trustees. 

VOTED ; To recommend to the Board of Trustees that it 
concur in the appointment by the Chancellor of 
the University of Massachusetts at Worcester 
of Dr. Charles D. J. Regan as Chairman of the 
Department of Ophthalmology, effective 
January 1, 1975. 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that it 
authorize the Chancellor of the University of 
Massachusetts at Worcester to offer Dr. John J. 
Collins an appointment at the Medical School 
as Professor of Thoracic and Cardiac Surgery 
and Chairman of the Department of Thoracic and 
Cardiac Surgery; total compensation not to 
exceed $90,000 per annum, comprised of the 
following components: (1) a salary between 
$75,000 and $80,000 and (2) such fringe benefits 
as are approved by the Board of Trustees. Such 
offer shall be with the explicit understanding 
that any appointment as well as all of the terms 
and conditions thereof, including salary and 
the source of funding, shall be subject to 
prior approval by the Board of Trustees.

Invited Guest: Mrs. Gladys Hardy 



The meeting was called to order at 1:30 p.m. 

Chairman Rowland opened the meeting by pointing out that 
the Committee's Agenda — FY '76 Capital Outlay and College IV — 
provided an opportunity to combine physical to educational planning 
and to see the relationship of both to the Trustees' guidelines on 
enrollment adopted last June. She mentioned questions of the 
capacity of the Downtown Center of UM/Boston (100 Arlington Street) , 
the timetable for the third college building (030) at the Harbor 
Campus, and the development plans for Colleges III and IV. 

President Wood outlined the University's capital outlay 
proposals for the coming year which emphasize: at UM/Amherst, the 
upgrading and re-use of existing buildings; at UM/Worcester , 
necessary equipment for the teaching hospital; and at UM/Boston, 
construction funds for the two remaining buildings in Phase II: 
College Building 030 and the Arts and Sciences Building (080/2) . 

Dr. Gartenberg provided further information about the 
requests and the submission process, and warned of indications 
that the Executive Branch might restrict its submission to a 
$50 million capital outlay budget for the entire Commonwealth in 
all departments. 

In answer to questions regarding the use of 100 Arlington 
Street, Chancellor Golino emphasized the limited space available, 
the probability that certain nonteaching activities would be

transferred there from the Harbor Campus, and the need for 
College IV students to be located at the Harbor Campus because 
of the intention to have much of their liberal arts instruction 
provided by Colleges I and II. 

Since the total capital budget sought by the University 
will in itself be higher than the $50 million potential limit, 
several Trustees emphasized the need for the University to develop 
contingency plans should the full amount of the budget requests — 
particularly construction funds for College Building 030 — not be 
forthcoming this year. 

The importance of the renovation program at UM/Amherst 
was emphasized since the period of major new construction for the 
University is nearing an end. A priority list for building 
renovations at the campus was requested. Discussion followed 
on the application and enrollment picture at UM/Boston and relation- 
ship of the development of the new management program to this 
enrollment and to necessary new facilities . 

At Chairman Rowland's request, Vice President Robinson 
introduced the discussion of the development calendar and 
resource requirements for College IV. Chancellor Golino, Vice 
Chancellor Spaethling and Dean Freeland reviewed the early planning 
for the college as a career-related program building on a liberal 
arts base. They indicated that program areas in addition to the 
program in management will be proposed in the near future. In 
answer to questions regarding the future phases of the college, 
Dean Freeland indicated that the enrollment would eventually be 
2,500 and that the management program is expected to expand beyond 
the original 500 students to a total of perhaps 900. 

Discussion followed on how best to insure a strong 
liberal arts component of the management program and on the impli- 
cations of alternative solutions for the faculties of Colleges I 
and II. Chancellor Golino expressed doubt that a separate liberal 
arts faculty in College IV would be developed, but emphasized the 
possibility of liaison faculty, joint appointments and other 
techniques to serve the special requirements of the new programs. 

The question was raised as to how liberal arts instruc- 
tion is provided for College III and the answer indicated that the 
college had its own liberal arts teaching staff. 

The possibility of an oversupply of graduates in manage- 
ment was raised, given the high application rate throughout the 
country at the present time. The importance of academic counseling 
in the new program was stressed. Dean Freeland reviewed his 
discussions with deans of business schools both nationally and in 
the Boston area and said an emphasis would be placed on rigorous 
skills in writing and analysis in the new program.

The meeting was called to order at 12:35 p.m. by 
Chairman Gordon. 

The Chairman asked Mr. Wood of the firm of Standish, 
Ayer and Wood, Inc., Investment Counselor, to review the semi- 
annual report (Doc. T75-036 Endowment Fund Portfolio Analysis as 
of October 4, 1974), which had previously been circulated to the 
Committee. Mr. Wood explained that his firm had made a detailed 
review of each of the present holdings in the Endowment Portfolio. 
In light of the present condition of the market, they were not 
making any recommendations for changes in the holdings at the 
present time. The weakest holdings were identified as: Holiday 
Inn, RCA, and Bankers Trust of New York and Mr. Wood suggested 
that these be eliminated from the list when market conditions are 
appropriate. Mr. Wood recommended that in line with other leading 
institutional holdings that the percentage of the fund invested in 
equities should continue at about two-thirds based on market value 
as it has been in recent years. He provided the Committee with the 
following comparisons:

Mr. Pumphret asked if we shouldn't reduce the number of 
companies represented in the portfolio over a period of time when 
market conditions warranted but continue the percentage in common 
stock at present. Mr. Wood endorsed this suggestion provided that 
no more than ten percent of the fund was ever invested in any one 
issue. There followed a detailed discussion between the members 
of the Committee and Mr. Wood pertaining to specific issues. Mr. 
Wood reviewed the outlook for various segments of the economy as 
his firm sees it at the present time. 

To invest approximately $16,920 of new cash that has come 
into the fund from bequests and gifts, Mr. Wood recommended and 
the Committee 

VOTED : To authorize and empower Kenneth W. Johnson, 
Treasurer of the University of Massachusetts, 
to execute the following transactions:

Chairman Gordon next turned to the review of the State 
Auditors' Reports for the fiscal year ended June 30, 1973, for the 
Amherst, Boston, and Worcester campuses. The campus responses to 
the auditors' comments are contained in Document T75-037 which had 
been distributed to the Committee in advance of the meeting. Dr. 
Gulko , Dr. Hamilton, and Mr. Stockwell responded to Trustee 
questions and elaborated on the report. It was apparent that the 
State Auditors' comments were being appropriately handled by the 
campus administrations. 

Mr. Joseph Albert, Insurance Consultant;, joined the 
meeting. Chairman Gordon asked him to review for the Trustees the 
work that he is doing in consultation with the campuses in developing 
specifications for personal liability coverage including malpractice 
insurance for the Medical School and Teaching Hospital. Mr. Albert

responded by saying that he was handling the medical malpractice 
and the liability exposures for personnel at the Teaching Hospital 
separate from the liability coverages for the rest of the Univer- 
sity. He explained that he is developing a tailor-made package 
of coverage that he will be bringing to the Finance Committee for 
detailed review and approval at subsequent meetings. At this time 
he is looking for guidance on three matters — Trustee coverage, the 
general scope of coverage and how the premiums will be paid. There 
followed a lengthy discussion on these and other considerations. 
Mr. Albert asked Assistant Counsel O'Leary, with whom he has been 
working, to explain the provisions of Chapter 577 of the Acts of 
1973: "An Act Indemnifying Trustees of Public Institutions of 
Higher Education." whereas this act provided indemnification for 
the Trustees, Mr. O'Leary explained that should damages be assessed 
by a court against the Trustees, there is the possibility that 
funds would not be appropriated to pay the judgment against a 
Trustee. Should that occur, the Trustee would still be liable for 
the damages. Mr. Albert recommended that Trustees protect them- 
selves against this contingent liability by its inclusion in the 
proposed University's general liability insurance package. Mr. 
O'Leary also reviewed the status of the Doctrine of Sovereign 
Immunity in Massachusetts. He reminded the Committee that the 
courts have served notice that they intend to do away with the 
Doctrine of Sovereign Immunity which would then leave the Trustees 
and officers liable for suits from which they are presently 
shielded. This, in the view of Mr. Albert, made it essential that 
insurance protection be provided. He stated that his approach was 
to cover all liability with the exception of specific exclusions 
that would be spelled out in the specifications. He was of the 
opinion that a policy for $5,000,000 not including medical mal- 
practice but including Trustee coverage would cost in the vicinity 
of $30-40,000 per year and this would include coverage for about 
8,000 people. The University is currently spending about $6,000 
for a limited special type of coverage, such as that of the police 
officers on the Amherst campus. There followed a discussion of 
the method of payment of the premium by individuals participating 
in a group plan versus payment of the premium to cover all Trustees, 
officers, faculty and employees to be paid for by the University. 
Mr. O'Leary saw no legal problems in using unrestricted trust 
funds but saw some potential areas of concern if state appropri- 
ations were used to pay the premiums. Chairman Gordon reduced the 
discussion to two issues — (1) who pays and (2) shall Trustees be 
included? The consensus was that Mr. Albert should continue to 
develop his proposals and to prepare specifications for the 
eventual acquisition of bids for inclusion of all the Trustees, 
officers, faculty, and employees on the basis that the premiums 
would be paid from unrestricted trust funds. It was understood 
that this approach might have to be modified when the premium costs 
were determined. The medical malpractice coverage would be 
separate and subject to further consideration by the Committee. 

It was

VOTED : To encourage the Insurance Consultant to proceed 
as rapidly as possible to develop the specifica- 
tions for the general personal liability coverage 
on an all-inclusive basis and separately the 
medical malpractice insurance for further review 
and approval by the Finance Committee at its next 
meeting. 

President Wood asked that the Committee consider authori- 
zation of negotiations of a rental agreement for apartment 
facilities in New York City for housing student interns under the 
University Outreach Program and it was 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that the 
Chancellor of the University of Massachusetts 
at Amherst, or his designee, be authorized to 
negotiate a rental agreement for apartment 
facilities in New York City, said agreement 
not to exceed the present academic year ending 
May 31, 1975, for the purpose of housing 
approximately ten interns. Further, that the 
Treasurer of the University in consultation 
with the President be empowered and authorized 
to execute a lease agreement for and in behalf 
of the University in furtherance of said 
purpose upon successful completion of said 
negotiations . 

Dr. Gage reviewed the desirability of having a branch 
bank on the Amherst campus (Doc. T75-034) . This is similar to the 
authorization previously granted to Chancellor GolinO to establish h 
branch bank at the Harbor Campus under the provisions of the new 
state law authorizing banks to locate at state institutions. Upon 
recommendation of the President, it was 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that in 
accordance with the provisions of Chapter 1089 
of the Acts of 1973 Chancellor Bromery, UM/ 
Amherst, or his designee, be authorized to invite 
bids with the concurrence of the University of 
Massachusetts Building Authority for selection 
of a commercial bank to maintain a branch in the 
Student Union section of the Campus Center. Said 
bids to be based on specifications approved by 
the Treasurer and the President with the provision 
that the bids received be presented to the 
Trustee Finance Committee for approval of the 
bank to be selected. 

Final action involved a correction in the rental rate of

was agreed that changes would be made in the final copy of the 
document sent to the Trustees. 

At Chancellor Soutter' s request, Dean Stockwell offered 
amendments which he felt should be reflected in the request before 
it was approved by the Committee. He wished to revise downward 
slightly the portion of the hospital's medical care expected to be 
paid for by third-party reimbursing agencies. He also preferred 
that the budget request not attempt to forecast the length of time 
required for revenue to catch up with patient care costs.

At the Chancellor's request, Mr. James Hamilton remarked

the length of time it would take for the Teaching Hospital to 
become self-sufficient. He also mentioned that the Teaching 
Hospital design provided the asset of allowing the hospital staff 
to confine functions to certain wings should the patient census in 
the future be lower than anticipated. 

Chairman Pumphret repeated his high regard for the

(Doc. T75-041) 



Chairman Pumphret requested Assistant Budget Director 
Hanson to address herself to the Request for Allocation from the 
Trust Fund Interest Reserve (Doc. T75-041) . Mrs. Hanson recapit- 
ulated the contents of the document, which requests and explains 
the need for an allocation of $135,000 from the Trust Fund Reserve 
for four purposes. The first purpose is to launch a program of 
bicentennial activities, including ground work for a proposed 
three-university consortium (to include the state universities 
of Pennsylvania and Virginia) which would seek foundation and other 
funds to carry out combined bicentennial activities. 

The second purpose of the allocation would be to pay the 
University's $20,000 share of the two programs supported by the 
Cooperative Association of New England Land-Grant Universities. 
The third and fourth purposes, respectively, would be to support 
a portion of the deficit of the Amherst campus's parking garage 
and to defray the expenses of the Visiting Committee on the 
Worcester campus. 

Vice Chancellor Hamilton discussed the relative funding 
of the parking garage at Boston and the Campus Center garage at 
Amherst . 



There being no further discussion, a motion was made and 
seconded, and it was

Budget Director Gartenberg was then asked by the Chair- 
man to discuss the proposed vote on the matter of the FY 76

I 



COMMITTEE

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

the Board of Higher Education had asked that the University's 
capital outlay request be submitted by November 22, which would 
precede scheduled Board action on the request. It was his desire 
that the Committee authorize capital outlay consultations with the 
BHE which would be subject to final Board of Trustees approval. 

Discussion followed, initiated by Chairman Pumphret , on 
the advisability of the Budget Committee taking such a vote prior 
to its consideration by the Buildings and Grounds Committee. 
President Wood suggested that the sense of the Committee be 
expressed in favor of negotiations on the capital outlay request 
in view of the vital importance that the capital outlay needs of 
the University be met. It was so expressed. 

Trustee Troy remarked, in reference to UM/Boston capital 
outlay requirements, that the desire to fund the new gymnasium 
should be clearly subordinate to the development needs of College III 
He emphasized his belief that any negotiations lay stress on this 
priority. President Wood indicated that they would be entered into 
with this priority clearly in mind. 

There being no further business to come before the 
Committee, the meeting was adjourned at 2:50 p.m.

11:15 a.m. 



At the request of the Chairman, President Wood commented 
on several matters relating to the Teaching Hospital at UM/ 
Worcester. He mentioned that at the October 2 meeting of the 
Executive Committee a lengthy discussion had been held involving 
the emerging budget for the completion, opening and operation of 
the Teaching Hospital. He stated that subsequently the Committee 
on the Budget had received, reviewed and approved the Teaching 
Hospital Maintenance Budget Request for Fiscal Year 1976 at its 
meeting on October 29 and that Trustee Pumphret, Chairman of the 
Budget Committee, would make a statement relating to the budget at 
the meeting of the Board of Trustees later in the day. The 
President applauded the excellent work done by the staffs at UM/ 
Worcester and in the Office of the Budget in preparing the budget 
document . 

He informed the Committee that Dr. Brownell Wheeler had 
accepted the appointment as Chief of Staff of the Teaching Hospital 
and that four committees had been set up by the faculty at UM/ 
Worcester to deal with hospital matters: a committee on curriculum 
headed by Dr. Sam Clark, a committee on ambulatory medicine headed 
by Dr. Richard Saunders, a hospital committee headed by Dr. 
Brownell Wheeler, and a committee on external relations headed by 
Dr. Arthur Pappas.

President Wood also mentioned that a consortium of

include the Teaching Hospital as well as the community hospitals. 
He also informed the Committee that Trustees Chandler and Spiller 
had been invited to join the Crispell Committee when it next meets 
on November 22 and 23. 

At the conclusion of the President's remarks, Chairman 
Healey asked Secretary Hardy to introduce the subject of the Univer- 
sity-wide diploma design. A mock-up of the proposed design was 
circulated among the Committee members, along with a sheet indica- 
ting how the new design varies from diplomas now in use. 

While the Committee were examining the mock-up, the 
Chairman asked Chancellor Soutter to bring the Committee up to date 
with regard to the status of various items concerning the opening 
of the Teaching Hospital. Dr. Soutter stated that the opening of 
the hospital is still contingent upon the timely receipt of equip- 
ment. Although an equipment list has been submitted to the Secre- 
tary for Educational Affairs and can go out for bids as soon as it 
is approved, lead time on some of the equipment is very tight. He 
feels that it will be possible to meet the opening date of July 1 
for the in-patient department and that the opening of the out- 
patient department may be delayed until June. Chancellor Soutter 
indicated that he expects some problems in the hiring of faculty, 
but that by supplementing permanent faculty with temporary faculty 
from the local hospitals, it will be possible to begin operation of 
the hospital. 

Trustee Pumphret stated that if the out-patient department 
does not open on the date anticipated and provided for in the 
budget, this fact should be called to the attention of the Legisla- 
ture so that appropriate budgetary adjustments can be made. Dr. 
Soutter indicated that since it is expected that a supplementary 
budget will be necessary, at such time as additional money is 
requested any necessary adjustments can be made known. 

A suggestion was made that the public should be more 
aware of the time and effort devoted by the Trustee Committee to the 
development and study of the University's budget. It was felt that 
the action of the full Board meeting in approving a budget does not 
always reflect the amount of work involved prior to the formal 
meeting. 

At the conclusion of the discussion of the budget for the 
Teaching Hospital, at 11:30 a.m., with the consent of the Committee, 
Chairman Healey called the body into Executive Session, with only 
Trustees, Chancellor Bromery, Treasurer Johnson, Secretary Hardy, 
and Assistant Secretary Eichel remaining present.

Chairman Shaler called the meeting to order at 1:10 p.m. 
He called upon Vice Chancellor Gage to begin discussion of the first 
agenda item, Progress Report on Counseling Programs at Boston and 
Amherst (Documents T72-042, T75-057). Dr. Gage asked Mr. Preston 
to present the report of the Amherst campus. Mr. Preston reviewed 
the major recommendations of the 1971 report of the Working Com- 
mittee on Counseling, Advising, and Support Services (Gage Report), 
and stated that the Amherst campus had moved ahead, both in the 
recommended areas and in other areas. The areas of progress he 
mentioned were: a substantial increase in the admission of minority 
and low-income students through the campus CCEBS (Committee for 
Collegiate Education of Black Students) program; the separation from 
the CCEBS program of a Spanish-speaking component (the Bilingual 
Collegiate Education Program), henceforth to stand on its own; the 
increase — to a total of 40% — in the number of minority students in 
the UWW (University Without Walls) program; and an increase in the 
number of minority students admitted via the standard admissions 
system.

In response to the Gage Report's recommendation, said Mr 
Preston, the special admissions programs had been reorganized to 
integrate them into the regular admissions system. Dr. Gage added 
that all admissions activities had been placed under one roof, and 
cited the newly adopted view that admissions and counseling should 
work together. 

Amherst Admissions Director Doolan said that the Admis- 
sions Office would soon begin recruiting, and offering counseling

services to minority students at the junior high school level. 

Amherst Admissions Director Doolan said that efforts to 
attract more women to nontraditional studies had met with uncertain 
success. Most women students are found in liberal arts programs, 
and though broader distribution is to be hoped for, progress in 
this area had been slow. 

Mr. Preston said a concern had been expressed within the 
system about the breadth of career counseling services, and the 
hope was expressed that it not focus on the needs of minority 
students to the exclusion of other students. He reported that the 
use of computer services had cut down on paperwork, allowing staff 
to reach out to students and to reach them earlier in their college 
careers. There has been greater success, he added, in getting 
faculty to play a more active part in the counseling process. 

Chairman Shaler observed that there had been efforts, 
early in the CCEBS program, to clearly identify and keep track of 
CCEBS students in an effort to evaluate the program's success. 

In response to a question, Mr. Preston observed that, 
although the CCEBS students receive special support services, they 
participate in the regular academic program. Trustee Troy asked 
about their survival rate. Mr. Preston said that it was good, to 
which Dr. Gage added that the effort of the program is to make 
minority students independent and competent. 

Discussion followed about financial aid problems and 
about problems encountered in the work/ study program. These 
included ambiguity of acceptance criteria and the difficulty of 
matching work/study opportunities with needful students. Mr. 
Preston described an increase in the number of minority students 
in the work/study program since 1971. Trustee Troy asked if there 
is a limit on the number of hours a student may work in the work/ 
study program, and was informed that there is a limit of 20 which 
is seldom reached. 

Dr. Gage was asked about the status of financial aid to 
middle-income students. He replied that, while the situation had 
improved, securing financial resources had proved to be a 
difficult problem. 

Mr. Preston provided the Committee with statistics to 
indicate rates of improvement in the hiring of minorities in the 
areas of counseling and advising. 

Chairman Shaler asked what Affirmative Action had to do 
with counseling and advising which, he said, should be the focus of 
the report. He reiterated that an end to the "in-office" approach 
to counseling is imperative, and that counseling services should 
place an emphasis on "out-reach." Mr. Preston said that the tie-in 
between affirmative action and counseling lies in the Gage Report's 



I 



COMMITTEE

I 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

recommendation that support staff be trained to meet the needs of 
minorities. In the past, he pointed out, there had been no minority 
members of the counseling and advising support staff to serve the 
needs of minorities. 

Dr. Gage was asked how many new positions had been added 
to the staff since the Gage Report. He answered that none had been 
added — the staff had been reorganized in an effort to improve 
services. One surprising result of the reorganization, he said, 
was a greatly increased demand on counseling services by alumni. 

Chairman Shaler asked Dr. Gage and Mr. Preston what they 
felt had been their area of greatest success, and what areas they 
were least pleased with. Dr. Gage said he believed the areas of 
greatest success to be affirmative action and the merger of personal 
and career counseling. The area with which he felt least satisfied, 
he added, was in the recruitment of low- income, minority and non- 
traditional students; this was due, he continued, to a lack of 
resources. Speaking of the positive side, Mr. Preston cited the 
change in the philosophy of the Student Affairs staff; on the 
negative side, he cited the inability to generate greater funds for 
Student Affairs purposes. 

Dr. Keith asked Dr. Gage and Mr. Preston when the Committee 
could expect a comprehensive report from the Amherst campus, and was 
informed that a report would be available in February. Graduate 
Student Senate President Lindsey raised the question of counseling, 
admissions, and advising services for graduate students. Chairman 
Shaler noted, in this respect, the importance of not taking for 
granted any segment of the student community. He asked Dr. Gage 
to mention to Chancellor Bromery the Committee's concern in this 
area. 

Chairman Shaler asked Chancellor Golino of the Harbor 
Campus to report to the Committee. Chancellor Golino began by 
informing the Committee that a full report would be submitted by 
February. He reviewed the recent history of the counseling and 
advising services at the Boston campus, stating that nothing had 
been done in this area from the time of the Gage Report, in 1971, 
to his arrival in 1973. 

The college-system changeover in 1972 created a large 
problem in reorganizing the student affairs staff without a pan- 
college coordinating agency. An early priority, he said, was to 
appoint a Chancellor for Student Affairs, and when Vice Chancellor 
Tubbs was appointed, his principal accomplishment was to create 
such a student affairs structure against a backdrop of the separate 
colleges . 

Chancellor Golino expressed his belief that a total 
student affairs staff of 53 persons is totally inadequate to meet 
the needs of 7,000 students on a campus such as the Harbor Campus.

COMMITTEE 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

UM/Boston is asking for a budget increment, the first possible 
since his arrival, to increase the effectiveness of these services. 
Until it is possible to give Vice Chancellor Tubbs the resources 
he needs, problems in this area will continue. Vice Chancellor 
Tubbs cited personnel figures in showing the inadequacy of the 
personal counseling component. In response to a question from the 
Chairman, he indicated that there had been no increase in the 
service resources in the time he had been at the Harbor Campus. 

The Chairman asked both Chancellor Golino and Vice 
Chancellor Tubbs to concentrate their report on the differences 
between "then" and "now," saying as he did so that Chancellor 
Golino f s predecessor had been unresponsive to Committee prodding 
for action in developing counseling and advising services. For 
this reason, he explained, the interest of the Committee is in 
concrete improvements rather than problems. 

Trustee Troy asked if the Harbor Campus's 51% attrition 
rate could be related to the lack of counseling services, and also 
asked if financial advice is available to students. Trustee Savini 
asked if there is any student involvement in the setting of student 
affairs policies. Vice Chancellor Tubbs responded to Trustee 
Troy's questions by saying that attrition is due to a combination 
of factors, and that financial advice is available through the 
admissions and financial aid office. In response to Trustee 
Savini 's question, he replied that peer counseling is an important 
component of the counseling and advising program, and that the peer 
counselors are consulted before policy decisions are made. Chan- 
cellor Golino added that the students' interests are served 
through their membership in the unicameral University Assembly. 

Chairman Shaler asked Vice Chancellor Tubbs to describe 
what is new in the structure of the Student Affairs Office since 
his appointment. Vice Chancellor Tubbs answered: reorganization 
of health services, revisions of vocational counseling capability, 
reorganization of the tutorial program, and the addition of two 
staff associates. He also said he had identified areas which could 
profit from central services, in contrast with prior history of 
Student Affairs. 

Chairman Shaler remarked that the FY 1974 budget had 
been prepared, according to usual form, shortly after the Gage 
Report was completed; i.e., two years in advance. At that time, 
he continued, he had looked at the budget to see what provision 
had been made for the Student Affairs needs of the Boston Campus, 
and had noticed that 30 new positions had been authorized to help 
implement the Gage Report's recommendations. He asked what had 
happened to the 30 positions. 

Chancellor Golino observed that the specific allocation 
of FY 1974 positions had taken place before his appointment. He 
said he would examine the situation and report to the Committee 
at its next meeting.

The Chairman concluded the discussion by saying that 
further reports, on both progress in Student Affairs and on the 
explanation of the missing positions, would be forthcoming from 
the Boston campus at the Committee's next meeting. 

Chairman Shaler turned to the next item. The Early 
Decision Admission Policy at Amherst had been discussed at the 



August meeting of the Committee, but no action had been taken at 
that time due to Mr. Cooley's feeling that a report on the experience 
of State University of New York at Buffalo would allow the Committee 
to make a more informed decision. (See Doc. T75-044) 

Mr. Doolan noted that the early decision policy was before 
the Committee only because of the proposed nonrefundable $100 fee. 
Further, even with Trustee approval of the program, it might not be 
implemented without a financial aid component. 

He said the goal of the early admission program was to 
make admission as easy as possible for the students of the Common- 
wealth, and to provide them with as many options as possible. 

Chairman Shaler observed that the early decision system 
could be abused by an institution in an effort to manipulate the 
type of student body it acquires. He asked Mr. Cooley to add any 
comments on this subject. Mr. Cooley observed that the early 
decision program had been extremely successful at State University 
of New York at Buffalo, in that 95% of the students who were 
accepted under the program did in fact enroll. He suggested, 
however, that the program was discriminatory in that it favored 
those students able to make up their minds earlier than others 
about what college they wished to attend. He said the only way to 
avoid discrimination is to ensure that, if 10% of all applicants 
were early decision applicants, no more than 10% of accepted 
students be early decision students. 

There was further discussion of the merits and philosophy 
of the early decision admission program. Trustee Savini remarked 
that the early decision program would tend to create peer pressure 
on students experiencing ambivalence about college plans, while the 
Chairman stated his belief that such a program would relieve 
pressure. Chairman Shaler pointed out that the matter would not 
even have come before the Committee except for the element of the 
$100 fee. Mr. Doolan indicated that the fee served to insure the 
seriousness of the early decider, and said that it did not discrim- 
inate against minority students in that it was waivable. 

Noting that the two Trustees present were opposed on the 
issue, the Chairman indicated that the issue could not be resolved. 
He remarked that overall evaluation and decision about the Early 
Decision Admission program would have to come about through proper 
channels.

Chairman Shaler next directed the meeting to consideratior. 
of the License Application of Radio Station WUMB (Doc. T75-045) . 
After a brief discussion of the relationship of the Harbor Campus 
to Boston University's station, WBUR, it was

Mr. Wood explained his recommendation by saying it was 
based on his analysis of the sluggishness of the leisure industry. 
Chairman Gordon, noting Mr. Wood's statement that Holiday Inns 
would probably not go lower, suggested to the Committee that the 
Holiday Inns stock be retained, at least for another month. 
After further discussion, on motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To authorize the Treasurer of the University 
of Massachusetts, Kenneth W. Johnson, to 
purchase for the endowment portfolio the follow- 
ing common stocks: 

100 Minnestoa Mining 
100 Xerox 
100 Exxon 
100 Motorola 

The Chairman asked Mr. Wood when he thought the portfolio 
ought to be considered again, and Mr. Wood replied that he would 
be available whenever circumstances required it or when the 
Committee called for it. 

The Chairman directed the Committee's attention to the 
next agenda item, Teaching Hospital Rates for Patient Care and 
Services (Doc. T75-050) . Treasurer Johnson informed the Committee 
that the proposed rates were the result of many meetings which 
had reviewed the subject in detail. He called this meeting an 
opportunity for the Trustees to discuss the pro's and con's 
broadly and to make truly informed decisions. 

At Chairman Gordon's request, Mr. Stockwell explained 
the proposed rates. He cited alternative rate systems: the all- 
inclusive system, which is one price per day computed by taking 
averages of the costs of all services; and the service-by-service 
system, which breaks charges down according to individual services. 

He mentioned the following reasons for choosing the 
service-by-service system as against the all-inclusive system: 
(1) although most state hospitals use the all-inclusive system, 
they are primarily chronic-care hospitals, whereas the University's 
Teaching Hospital is to be a referral hospital, which will deal 
primarily with complex cases; (2) the service-by-service system is 
the existing pattern for most hospitals in the Worcester area, and 



COMMITTEE 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

is the pattern in both Boston and Massachusetts as a whole, for 
teaching hospitals; (3) the all-inclusive rate depends largely on 
patient volume, and the Teaching Hospital cannot provide specific 
projections for patient volume at this time; (4) the lack of a 
precedent for the all-inclusive system might cause problems with 
negotiations with Blue Cross of Massachusetts in its role as a 
fiscal intermediary for Medicare. 

Mr. Martin seconded each of these reasons, and reiterated 
the difficulties the all-inclusive system would raise in negotiations 
with Blue Cross, both in its role as fiscal intermediary and in its 
proposed contract with the Teaching Hospital. Dean Stockwell added 
at this point that, since the Teaching Hospital's services will vary, 
a rate system which more accurately reflects this variation might be 
received more readily by the public than one which does not. 

Mr. Stockwell endorsed the $125-per-day rate for a two-bed 
room for several reasons: it would be higher than those of the 
Worcester hospitals, thereby eliminating complaints of unfair 
competition from those hospitals; yet the rates are equal to those 
of the Boston teaching hospitals and below cost. He pointed out 
that the Teaching Hospital had considered rates of $143 and $155 
per day, but had opted for the lower rate, not wishing to exceed 
those of the Boston hospitals. 

Trustee Bicknell asked whether any thought had been given 
to what the rate would be if it were based on cost. Mr. Cathey 
replied that the Teaching Hospital's budgetary study (HOSPLAN) had 
looked into this as an exercise, and had concluded that rates based 
on cost would exceed $200 a day. Reducing the cost charge by 30%, 
he said, produced the alternative figure of $143 per day. 

Chairman Gordon asked which of the three figures would 
create a greater problem in negotiation of a reimbursement agreement 
Mr. Martin replied that any of the three figures would be accept- 
able; Blue Cross, for example, would pay the actual charge or the 
cost, whichever is lower. He added two reasons for the proposed 
$125-per-day charge: (1) a charge of $155-per-day would be 
difficult to explain to the public in light of the rates of private 
hospitals; (2) to set rates at cost would be unreasonable, since 
costs of a hospital in its first year are always inflated. 

Trustee Pumphret asked if the Teaching Hospital staff 
planned to take the proposed rate schedule to the Rate Setting 
Commission after Trustee approval, for its approval. Mr. Stockwell 
replied that this was their expectation. 

Chairman Gordon stated that a principle of philosophy is 
involved: the Teaching Hospital is to be a public hospital, and 
as such has an obligation not to require the public to pay unreason- 
ably high rates. At the same time, he said, it is important to 
recognize the rights of the private sector and to allow it room to

breathe by not setting rates which would compete with the Worcester 
hospitals. He expressed his concurrence in the thinking behind 
the proposed rates. Trustee Croce agreed, saying he was convinced 
that a middle position is best. A good teaching hospital, he said, 
never gets in the black. He also said he felt that too great a 
preoccupation with the hope of making the hospital debt-free is to 
place an emphasis on the wrong concern. 

There being no further discussion, and a motion having 
been made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that it 
approve and adopt the UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHU- 
SETTS TEACHING HOSPITAL PROPOSED RATE BOOK as 
set forth in Trustee Document T75-050 subject 
to any changes or amendments thereto which may 
be required by law or regulation or which the 
Chancellor of the University of Massachusetts 
at Worcester, in consultation with the Presi- 
dent, may deem necessary. 

Following the vote, Mr. Stockwell mentioned for the 
record that no charges for professional services were included in 
the rate book, nor were they in the comparable rates which were 
discussed. Over the next few weeks or months as the clinical 
faculty sees fit, he said, the hospital plans to develop a rate 
structure in that field also. 

Chairman Gordon next turned to the proposed Statement of 
Credit and Collection Policies (Doc. T75-051) . Speaking of this 
item, Mr. Stockwell informed the Committee that the credit and 
collection policy is needed, not only to insure that the Hospital 
meets these issues in a way agreeable to the Trustees, but as a 
prerequisite to the proposed contractual agreement with Blue Cross. 

Chairman Gordon moved to recommend approval of the 
policies, then raised the question of whether the guidelines pro- 
posed would have the standing of policy or procedures. The answer 
indicated that they were procedures. Mr. Stockwell stated that 
he believed the hospital needs some discretion in applying the 
procedures outlined. 

Several persons present asked questions about the docu- 
ment. Trustee Pumphret expressed concern that the hospital not be 
given what would amount to a blank check in applying and modifying 
such procedures, while Treasurer Johnson, President Wood, and Vice 
President Edelman observed that there appeared to be a number of 
problems with the document, both legal and literary. It was 
reiterated, however, that the hospital needed approval of credit and 
collection policies in order to negotiate a reimbursement agree- 
ment with Blue Cross.

COMMITTEE 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Chairman Gordon put forth the suggestion that the Committee 
approve the document provisionally. This met no objection, and 
a motion was made to amend a motion made previously, viz., that 
the Committee recommend provisional approval of the proposed 
policies, pending review of the President's Office. 

The motion was seconded and it was accordingly 

VOTED ; To recommend to the Board of Trustees that it 
grant provisional approval of the UNIVERSITY 
OF MASSACHUSETTS TEACHING HOSPITAL STATEMENT 
OF CREDIT AND COLLECTION POLICIES as set forth 
in Trustee Document T7 5-051, subject to 
review by the President's Office. 

Vice President Edelman mentioned, as a postscript to 
Trustee Pumphret's concern, his and Mr. Stockwell's agreement that 
the hospital should not be given a blank check in application of 
the credit and collection policies. He said there would be a con- 
stant process of review and consultation of the policies by the 
Committee and the President's Office. 

The next agenda item was the proposed Blue Cross of Massa- 
chusetts, Inc., Hospital Reimbursement Agreement (Doc. T75-053) . 



Mr. Stockwell explained that the proposed agreement is a standard 
document, required for operation of any hospital. The President 
expressed his satisfaction with the agreement, and brief discussion 
followed on technical aspects of its operation. A motion was made 
and seconded, and there being no further discussion, it was 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that it 
authorize the Chancellor of the University of 
Massachusetts at Worcester to execute on 
behalf of the University of Massachusetts 
Teaching Hospital a Hospital Reimbursement 
Agreement with Blue Cross of Massachusetts, 
Inc., as set forth in Trustee Document T75- 
053 subject to whatever negotiated amend- 
ments may be agreed to by the Chancellor, 
in consultation with the President of the 
University, and Blue Cross of Massachusetts, 
Inc. 

The next item to be considered was that of Selection of 
the Medicare Fiscal Intermediary (Doc. T75-054) . Mr. Fellner 
explained to the Committee the need for this designation in view 
of certain provisions of the Medicare Act. He said it was felt 
that Blue Cross, Inc., was preferred for this relationship for 
reasons outlined in the document. 

The question was raised whether, once such a fiscal 
intermediary is designated, the designation can be changed.

Mr. Martin stated that only "good and sufficient reasons," such as 
a serious administrative breakdown, could be considered grounds for 
changing the designation. There was no further discussion. Upon 
motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that 

it select Blue Cross of Massachusetts, Inc., 
as the fiscal intermediary between the 
University of Massachusetts Teaching Hospital 
and the United States Social Security Admin- 
istration as outlined in Trustee Document 
T75-054. 

The Chairman next turned to the proposed Computerized 
Patient Accounting System for the University Teaching Hospital 
(Doc. T75-055) . Treasurer Johnson reviewed the need for computers 
in the operations of any modern hospital, emphasizing that a 
service contract, not computer purchases, is recommended. Mr. 
Heiney added that trying to perform such operations "in-house" 
would be prohibitively expensive.

6368 of 1974 (Doc. T75-014), 



it will be necessary for the rules and 
with the state Department of Administr 



regulations to be discussed 
ation and Finance. 



Trustee Bicknell remarked that the elements of the Group 
Practice Plan having to do with relationships of the Medical School 
with other state insitutions — specifically citing the first four 
points of the Memorandum of Understanding — are of special interest 
to his office, and he said he looks forward to further consulta- 
tions with the President's Office on this subject. There was no 
further discussion of the item, and a motion having been made and 
seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that the 

Treasurer of the University, Kenneth W. Johnson, 
with the concurrence of President Wood and 
Chancellor Soutter, be authorized to enter into 
a two-year agreement with renewable options 
thereafter with Shared Medical Systems Corpora- 
tion, King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, for pro- 
viding a computerized on-line accounting, billing 
and financial reporting system for the University

Teaching Hospital, including options for adding 
the Physicians Group Practice accounting system 
based on the generality of their bid proposal 
of September 27, 1974, and the fees and charges 
contained therein. 

The next item to be taken up by the Committee was the 
proposed Renewal of Rental Agreement of Field Office, Dorchester 
Avenue, Boston — UM/Boston (Doc. T75-048) . Trustee Rowland called 



attention to Vice Chancellor Hamilton's letter of October 7, which 
she said appeared to have committed the University to a renewal of 
the lease in advance of Committee or Board consideration. There 
was discussion of the letter, during which Chairman Gordon asked 
Dr. Hamilton if the letter did constitute a lease. Dr. Hamilton 
replied that the letter could be viewed that way. Chairman Gordon 
requested that, in the future, the Committee not be asked to approve 
a fait accompli. Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that the 
Chancellor of the University of Massachusetts 
at Boston, or his designee, be authorized to 
renew the rental agreement for the Field Office 
located at 932 Dorchester Avenue, Boston in 
accordance with the terms and conditions set 
forth in Trustee Document T75-048 subject to any 
modifications which the Chancellor, in consulta- 
tion with the President, may deem necessary. 

The second agenda item under UM/Boston was a proposal for 
a change in the terms of the Richard T. Hogan Endowment Fund (Doc. 
T75-049) . Treasurer Johnson recapitulated the document for the 
Committee, explaining the change in the personal situation of Joseph 
Hogan, and the consequent need for adjustments in the provision of 
the fund. Upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board of Trustees amend 

its vote of February 23, 1972, establishing the 
Richard T. Hogan Memorial Scholarship Fund as an 
endowment fund to read "... for a period of 
three years to be added to the principal of the 
fund and thereafter commencing in 1975 . . ."so 
that the amended vote will read as follows: 

VOTED : To establish the Richard T. Hogan Memorial

University of Massachusetts in the principal 
amount of four thousand four hundred dollars 
($4,400) from gifts and donations of the

The meeting recessed at 5:50 p.m. and reconvened at 



7 : 25 p.m. 



Chairman Gordon called upon Vice President Edelman to 
open the discussion of The Proposed Greater Amherst Area Health 
Plan (HMO ) as summarized in Doc. T75-056. Mr. Edelman stated that 
the establishment of a health maintenance plan such as the one 
proposed was a major commitment and that, therefore, the proposal 
was being brought to the attention of the Committee on Finance and 
to the Board of Trustees for their consideration at an early stage 
in its development. Mr. Edelman introduced to the Committee Mr. 
Barry Averill, Director, and Ms. Gail Nelson, of the staff, of the 
University Health Services, UM/Amherst, who had drafted the pro- 
posal submitted to HEW for funds, for further planning and develop- 
ment. The proposal, he said, provides for a comprehensive prepaid 
group practice health plan for the greater Amherst area. Such 
plans have in the last two years received recognition and funding 
by the federal government . 

Mr. Edelman informed the Committee that the University 
employees in the Boston area have been offered the Harvard Com- 
munity Health Plan as an option to the State Aetna Insurance Plan 
and that a 1973 federal law now requires employers to offer such 
options where community health plans exist. 

Mr. Edelman explained that the plan being proposed at 
Amherst will be called the Greater Amherst Area Health Plan and 
will consist of two parts, one of which will be based in the Uni- 
versity Health Services facilities, serving up to 5,000 faculty, 
staff, and dependents; the other will be located at the Amherst 
Medical Associates, a group of physicians in the Amherst community, 
serving as many as 25,000 residents in the Amherst area. The two 
segments would operate separately, since University facilities can 
only be used to serve University personnel. The premiums paid by 
employees will enable them to go to the University Health Services 
for medical care. The additional space required to serve those 
persons choosing to participate in the HMO plan is available now

in the University Health Services facilities. Therefore, such a 
plan would not adversely affect the current student health services, 
but would, indeed, improve and expand the services currently avail- 
able to students by providing greater variety and a better quality 
of care. Although the students will not be a part of the plan, they 
will benefit from it because a portion of the expanded specialty 
care that will be brought to the campus by the HMO can be purchased 
for students out of student fee revenues. Mr. Edelman indicated 
that faculty, students, and staff of the University are in favor 
of such a plan, as is the Amherst community as well as a majority 
of the physicians in the area. 

In response to a question from Trustee Croce, Mr. Averill 
explained that participants in the plan would have a choice of 
specialists in a given specialty, but that where such specialists 
were provided by the plan, fees for specialists outside of the plan 
would not be paid. However, if a specialist was required in a 
specialty not included in the plan, then the plan would pay the 
cost on a fee for service basis. 

Replying to a query as to the relative merits of the 
current Aetna plan and the proposed HMO plan, Mr. Averill said that 
the proposed plan would equal if not exceed coverage now provided. 

Treasurer Johnson inquired how funds generated by the 
plan would be handled, to which Mr. Averill replied there were two 
options: (1) a trust fund could be established and (2) payment 
could be handled directly through the HMO plan. The Treasurer 
expressed the hope that no commitment would be made until both the 
legal and financial aspects were thoroughly explored. 

Dr. Wheeler offered the expertise of the Medical School 
faculty in assisting in the securing of qualified physicians, 
and Mr. Averill indicated that the Amherst personnel would continue 
to consult with UM/Worcester faculty in this regard. 

Chairman Gordon, at the request of Trustee Bicknell, 
read into the record of the meeting the following statement from 
him: "In case I have to leave before the UM/Amherst matter comes 
up, I think the grant proposal for the prepaid group is very well 
and thoughtfully done and deserves the full support of the 
Committee and the full Board." 

After brief further discussion of various aspects of the 
proposed plan, there being no further business before the Committee, 
the meeting adjourned at 8:15 p.m.

The meeting was called to order at 10:10 a.m. 

Chairman Troy called upon Vice President Lynton to 
address the first agenda item, Faculty Workload Reports from UM / 
Boston and UM/Amherst . Reviewing the history of the item, Dr. 
Lynton informed the Committee that the business before it was to 
acknowledge receipt of the campuses' responses to the Trustees' 
guidelines of last July, which in turn had been prompted by the 
preamble to the Appropriations Act. He pointed out that the 
summary reports prepared by the campuses are based on teaching 
assignments which had predated both the legislative mandate and 
the Trustees' guidelines, and that their findings really satisfy 
the contact-hour minimums laid down by the Legislature even without 
reference to non-scheduled instructional activities. The total 
average number of contact hours per week on the Amherst campus is 
12.7, while on the Boston Campus the figure is 9.4. It is 



I 



I 



COMMITTEE

I 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

gratifying, he said, that both campuses have fulfilled the require- 
ments without legislative intrusion, and in accordance with internal 
guidelines which have been in operation for some time. 

He observed that the nature of the University is such 
that faculty members receive assignments for greater or lesser 
direct, contact-hour activities, depending on the part they play in 
the general teaching effort. Since the legislative guidelines had 
been known, however, some faculty members whose workloads were greater 
had requested that their teaching loads be reduced to a point 
closer to the level laid down as normal by the Legislature. This, 
he said, clearly indicates the counter-productive nature of individ- 
ual workload reports and the emphasis on averages. 

Dr. Lynton also remarked that the findings suggest the 
need for review and adjustment of certain policies. Therefore, it 
was the plan to review the initial guidelines issued in July, in 
consultation with both campuses, with the intention of revising 
them in time for examination and referral by the Committee to the 
Board. 

Chairman Troy turned first to Vice Chancellor and Provost 
Gluckstern of the Amherst campus for an explication of his report. 

Dr. Gluckstern stated that 1308 of an authorized 1590 
positions were reported upon in the report. The difference, he 
pointed out, was due to a variety of categories inappropriate for 
report, or by such special situations as vacancies or sabbaticals. 

Results had indicated, he said, that the instructions 
given to faculty members were not sufficiently clear in view of 
the fact that the modes of individual teaching vary from unit to 
unit. He cited the School of Education as an example of one 
segment of the campus whose figures seemed on the high side. 
Review would be necessary to deal with these variations, he said. 
The average workload for the main units on the campus was at least 
10 hours per week, while that for the campus as a whole was 12.74 
hours. 

Other statistics he offered, reading from the report: 
30 percent of the 1307 faculty members reported upon had workloads 
in excess of 13.5 hours; 12.4 percent of the faculty have workloads 
between 12 and 13.5 hours; more than 70 percent of the faculty have 
workloads in excess of 9; more than 82 percent have workloads in 
excess of 7.5. In sum, he said, the average of the campus is in 
excess of the minimum. 

Chairman Troy, noting some questions about precise words 
and figures, asked what form the report to the Legislature would 
take. It was generally felt that some editing and reworking would 
be necessary.

President Wood stated that the University had been able 
to define contact hours in its own terms in carrying out this 
legislative mandate. There were two issues, he said, which the 
Committee might wish to address itself to: (1) the mode of pre- 
sentation of the data to the public (in this regard he suggested 
a public presentation at the time the report is made to the Legis- 
lature) , and (2) the possibility of entering into discussions with 
the faculty, in light of the grave concerns they had conveyed about 
the legislative mandate. 

Dr. Gluckstern added at this point that Amherst had data 
which explained the cases of individuals whose workloads were 
below the minimum. In response to a question from the Chairman, 
he indicated that there were approximately 50 individuals whose 
workloads would have to be adjusted. On the whole, however, he 
said he was satisfied with the explanations for individual cases 
with workloads below the minimum. 

The President emphasized that nothing in previous months 
had indicated any lessening of interest on the part of the legis- 
lators or the executive branch in these matters; in fact, he said, 
there was reason to suppose that the incoming administration 
would be even more interested in such things as cost efficiency. 

Chairman Troy asked Vice Chancellor Spaethling to make 
the report of the Harbor Campus. Vice Chancellor Spaethling 
informed the Committee that there were two parts to his report. 
The first was the legislatively mandated report, while the second 
was a memorandum, approved by the Chancellor, transmitted to the 
Committee. 

Dr. Spaethling described what he called the two-sided 
coin of the reporting process. While he said he regarded it as a 
legislative intrusion, he said it was also enormously beneficial 
for the campus's own purposes. He said the report of the Boston 
campus was the result of a conscious effort to make as honest a 
report as possible, one not designed specifically to satisfy the 
Legislature. He said he felt the campus had indeed somewhat 
conservatively reported equivalencies to the contact hours. 

Dr. Spaethling also observed differences between the 
colleges on the Harbor Campus with regard to instructional mode 
and the use of instructional time, which explains variations in 
the figures given for each. As could be expected, he said, 
College III, with its nontraditional programs, varied most from 
the others. 

Dr. Spaethling proceeded to explicate the charts and 
figures in the report, and discussion followed, with several 
Trustees asking questions about the terms and categories used. 
The number of hours for the three colleges was an average of 8.21 
hours per week, a figure which does not include any equivalencies. 



t 



I 



COMMITTEE 



I 



I 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

When equivalencies are added, however, the figure becomes 9.40 hours 
per week, or 9.84 hours if College III is excluded. 

Dr. Spaethling expressed his belief that the Trustees 
should resist in the future such "by-name" report requests from the 
Legislature. He said if faculty members are forced to compile and 
make such reports, the loss in reduced teaching time will be greater 
than the gain. In response to a question from the Chairman, Dr. 
Spaethling granted the beneficial side of the reporting effort, but 
said that the faculty needed time to teach, as well. He concluded 
with a strong statement of opposition to such reports and 
reiterated his request that the Trustees oppose such legislative 
mandates in the future. 

Ms. Flannery asked if there is any mechanism for students 
at the Harbor Campus to evaluate faculty members, and was informed 
that such evaluations do take place in the form of questionnaires. 
Trustee Steed described what she believed was a general student 
view that UM/Boston was very strong in its accessibility of 
students to faculty. 

President Wood said he agreed with all that Dr. Spaethling 
said, but wished to point to the danger of "talking to ourselves," 
in using the rhetoric of outrage; it is enormously important, he 
said, to insure that the message gets to the outside. He said it 
is important for faculty members to realize that times do change, 
and adjustments do have to be made from time to time in response 
to changing circumstances. 

Considerable discussion followed on the proper tone of 
the University's report. Several Trustees expressed opposition to 
a stance which might seem to challenge the Legislature, in spite 
of the strong feelings which the requirement had generated. 
Trustee Robertson said the faculty ought to be assured that the 
Trustees were behind them, but he could see no reason to assume 
that the Legislature would not be completely satisfied with the 
report . 

After further discussion, and upon motion made and 
seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that it 

certify to the Chairman of the House and Senate 
Ways and Means Committee that the teaching 
faculty of the University of Massachusetts at 
Amherst and at Boston are in compliance with 
the guidelines on instructional workload 
established by the Board.

LiSt COMMITTEE 



Chairman Troy directed the Committee's attention to the 
next item on the agenda, the Faculty Appointments and Departmental 
List, University of Massachusetts at Worcester . Dr. Lynton 
expressed his regret that the departmental descriptions provided 
by Chancellor Soutter had not been provided to the Committee early 
enough to consider it in depth, but said that its primary purpose 
at the moment was to provide a context within which the Committee 
might properly consider the recommended appointments of the three 
faculty members. In addition, Dr. Lynton described a narrative 
provided to the Committee by the Chancellor which should also 
assist the Committee in understanding and appreciating the 
particular specialties relative to the three recommended appoint- 
ments . 



Dr. Lynton said the Committee might properly take up, 
at its next meeting, the details of the planning document. 

Trustee Steed asked if the Medical School was prepared 
to cope with the needs of the dying, saying that hospitals had 
traditionally referred such cases to chaplains. Dr. wheeler 
replied that the Medical School has a course entitled "Medicine and 
Society" which does deal with the doctor's role in facing the 
issue of death and dying. He added that the Medical School hopes, 
through its admissions process, to select the kind of students who 
will be able to respond humanely to such concerns. 

Dr. Bloomberg underscored the pertinence of Trustee 
Steed's question, and observed that great strides had been made 
since World War II in dealing with the "whole person." Dr. Lynton 
observed that neither document before the Committee dealt with 
the role of the social sciences in the Medical School, and he said 
it might be appropriate at some future time for an all-day session 
to be devoted to the development of the Teaching Hospital and the 
Medical School. 



Chancellor Soutter stated that his departmental descrip- 
tions had been compiled in great haste in response to a request 
from the President's Office, and that descriptions of departments 
should properly be made by the department chairmen. There are, 
however, many departments without chairmen at the present, and 
he therefore took it upon himself to compile the document. He 
pointed to what he predicted will be the necessity for continued 
revision as changes in the Medical School take place. The docu- 
ment, he said, should be considered preliminary, and revisions 
required to make it complete might take as much as a year. 

Referring to the proposed appointments, Ms. Flannery 
expressed her belief that before such appointments are made, the 
Trustees should vote on a plan dealing with the relative strengths 
of the various departments. Chairman Troy said he had gathered 
from the planning narrative that, even for students in family 
medicine, a grounding in certain basic specialties would be 
essential . 



I 



COMMITTEE 



I 



I 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Dr. Wheeler, Chief of Staff of the Teaching Hospital, 
confirmed Chairman Troy's statement, and added that it is perfectly 
valid to expect a Medical School to proceed on the basis of a 
master plan which expresses priorities. He also said he could not 
conceive, and thought most medical educators would agree, of a 
first-rate medical school which did not have specialists in 
Cardiology, Otolaryngology, and Cardiac and Thoracic Surgery. 

Chairman Troy asked Dr. Wheeler if Dr. Collins would 
devote more time to his teaching activities than to actual surgical 
activities, and Dr. Wheeler replied affirmatively. He added that 
nothing can take the place, in a medical education, of seeing a 
patient cared for under actual conditions of need. Dr. Lynton 
added that these specialties do fit into the narrative plan which 
speaks to their scope and size. 

Ms. Flannery asked whether it would be possible in the 
future for such departments to be expanded on a piecemeal basis 
without reference to the number of similar appointments which might 
have been made in the past. Chairman Troy replied that the Board 
of Trustees is, after all, developing the Medical School, that it 
is fully aware of what it is doing and why, and that it would take 
a severe attitude towari piecemeal, ad hoc enlargements to such 
departments once they had reached their intended size. President 
Wood, Chairman Troy, and Dr. Bloomberg all expressed the view that 
it is the primary responsibility of the faculty itself to develop 
programs of professional education, and that it would be unwise 
for the Committee or the Board to interpose themselves into such 
developmental decisions. The Board, said Chairman Troy, must be 
responsible without becoming meddlesome in areas where it does 
not have specialized knowledge. 

A motion was made and seconded, and it was 

VOTED ; To recommend to the Board of Trustees that it 
concur in the appointment by the President of 
Dr. Richard R. Gacek as Professor of Otolaryngology 
with tenure at the University of Massachusetts 
at Worcester, with total compensation and 
each component thereof to be first approved by 
the Board of Trustees. 

It was also

The meeting was called to order at 2:20 p.m. by Chairman 
Rowland. Before turning to the agenda, Mrs. Rowland welcomed the 
members of the New Directions Committee, who had been invited to 
attend, and reviewed the role of the Long-Range Planning Committee. 
The Long-Range Planning Committee, she said, was established in 
order to provide the Trustees with an opportunity for sustained 
examination and discussion of critical University policy issues 
related to the long-term programmatic and physical development of 
the University. She stated that in order to provide this oppor- 
tunity, it was necessary to limit the attendance of non-Trustees at 
Committee meetings. Although, unlike other Trustee Committees, the 
Long-Range Planning Committee did not frequently discuss items 
requiring immediate action, Chairman Rowland said that, when votes 
were taken by the Committee, they represented significant policy 
statements, as indicated by Chairman Healey in his remarks at the 
November meeting of the Board of Trustees, in which he emphasized 
both the decision-making responsibilities of the Board and the 
responsibility of the Long-Range Planning Committee in developing 
Trustee policy.

Committee Report 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



Chairman Rowland said that at its initial meeting over 
a year ago the Committee had adopted a tentative agenda which 
would include studies of enrollment planning, program planning and 
space planning over a period of eighteen months to two years. She 
indicated that work on enrollment planning began last January with 
attention to UM/Boston and is continuing this fall with emphasis 
on UM/Amherst. 

Concluding her remarks with reference to the purpose of 
the Committee, Mrs. Rowland asked President Wood if he wished to 
make any introductory remarks before the New Directions Committee 
presented their recommendations. 

President Wood said that it might be helpful to the 
members of the New Directions Committee if he outlined the admin- 
istrative implementation of Trustee policies as distinguished from 
the process by which policy is formulated, indicating areas of 
primary initiative. First, he explained the two basic calendars 
which govern actions of the Board of Trustees — the academic and 
the budget — of which the latter puts the greater constraints on 
planning. He said that three conditions govern the proper develop- 
ment of maintenance and capital budgets — enrollment targets, the 
status of physical development and major program emphases. In 
order to meet budget deadlines, he explained, the cycle must begin 
in February, with budget estimates in March, preliminary budgets 
in May and final budgets in August for action by the Board of 
Trustees in October. General policy assumptions have to be develop' 
ed in fall or early winter if they are to be considered in June 
or July as the budget becomes finalized. While subject as well to 
the rhythm of the academic calendar, academic planning, he stated, 
has to be synchronized with budget deadlines. 

President Wood indicated that in the case of Trustee 
policy statement on enrollment planning at UM/Boston, the statement 
was the final result of a process which began with the clarification 
of national trends affecting enrollment, the evaluation of the 
current campus trends, and the consideration of new factors and 
alternatives influencing enrollment, and concluded with the explicit 
guidelines in the final policy statement. President Wood indicated 
that a close watch would be kept to determine whether the enroll- 
ment guidelines were effective, particularly since at the time the 
guidelines were issued, the ratio of upper to lower division was 
43/53 and the current ratio is 37/59, moving in the opposite 
direction from the 60/40 ratio included in the guidelines. 

At the conclusion of the President's remarks, Chairman 
Rowland asked Chancellor Golino to introduce the members of the 
New Directions Committee. After doing so, Chancellor Golino 
reviewed the background which led to the creation of this campus 
committee. He indicated that the report of the New Directions 
Committee was in agreement with the Trustee policy statement with

the exception of the growth rate and ultimate size for the campus, 
and indicated that he was pleased that the Trustee statement pro- 
vided for the possibility of a revised enrollment ceiling should 
future conditions make it necessary. He said that on the basis of 
recommendations from the University Assembly at UM/Boston he would 
like to present his recommendations at a later date when the enroll- 
ment picture is clearer. The Chancellor then called upon Professor 
Ford, chairman of the New Directions Committee, to introduce 
discussion of the New Directions Report. 

Professor Ford indicated that, rather than to try to 
summarize the report, he would mention a few of the recommendations 
which the committee felt to be of the greatest importance. He listed 
these as (1) diversification of the student body and active recruit- 
ment to achieve this diversification, (2) basic skills help for 
enrolled students, both in regular courses and in provision for the 
handling of special problems, (3) an extended day program for the 
benefit of working students (4) summer program, (5) graduate education, 
and (6) pre-college and transitional programs. 

Professor Ford said that the nature of academic programs 
and the quality of educational standards were not dealt with 
directly in the report; however, the report tends to make recom- 
mendations that bear on both. 

After expanding on the six points listed above, Professor 
Ford asked for comments and questions from the Trustees. In 
response to Trustee Spiller's request for a definition of "active 
recruitment," Chancellor Golino replied that the campus is making 
a special effort to discover students in the Boston area who might 
not have considered higher education as a possible option. To this 
end, he said, the campus personnel hope to go into the Boston area 
high schools to talk with eleventh graders. Professor Ferguson 
added that a Carnegie Foundation grant is assisting the campus in an 
increasing awareness of the career needs of older students, 
particularly women, and she stated that many such students were 
potential targets for campus recruitment. 

Trustee Carlson emphasized that it is important that 
recruitment be aimed at serving existing needs rather than attempt- 
ing to create new ones. 

Professor Ford said that if the campus is to fulfill its 
goal of serving the various types of students, especially those from 
the low- income segment and the high-impact area, it is necessary 
that Colleges III and IV be fully developed and that an enrollment 
figure of 12,500 is a responsible figure for this undertaking. 

Vice Chancellor Hamilton said that an extended-day pro- 
gram, along with a fully funded summer program, would, in addition 
to serving working students, enable students to graduate in three

years. The President and members of his staff indicated that such 
programs would require active recruitment and would entail a more 
complex enrollment pattern. Vice President Robinson said that 
Fall 1974 enrollment figures seemed to indicate that the proportion 
of part-time students had dropped slightly since a year ago. In 
order to reach an enrollment goal of 10,000 in 1980, as the 
Trustee guidelines anticipated and to meet the guideline regarding 
part-time students, it would be necessary to recruit or attract 
three to five times as many part-time students as are now enrolled. 

Mr. Callahan and Trustee Robertson emphasized the impor- 
tance of keeping the public informed of the building needs of the 
campus by publishing facts to substantiate campus enrollment 
forecasts, especially when space is available at other institutions. 
Vice Chancellor Hamilton suggested that two important considerations^ 
in this regard were the investment already made by the Commonwealth 
in facilities intended for up to 15,000 students, and the high 
cost per student if effective use is not made of these facilities. 

The Trustees and campus personnel agreed on the need to 
serve the types of potential students who are not now being served 
or cannot afford to enroll in other institutions and the impor- 
tance of not duplicating existing programs. 

President Wood and Vice President Robinson said that, 
in reality, there was no disagreement between the New Directions 
Report and the Trustee policy statement — with regard to the enroll- 
ment ceiling — since the Trustee ceiling did not include the 1000 
FTE summer students and the 350 FTE precollege students proposed 
in the campus report. If these students are subtracted from the 
12,500 FTE total recommended in the New Directions report, the 
result is almost identical to the 11,000 FTE (12,500 full and part- 
time students) set in the June, 1974 guidelines. They noted that 
the guidelines explicitly provide for the possibility of reaching 
the interim 10, 000-student goal prior to 1980. 

At the conclusion of the discussion of the New Directions 
Committee recommendations in relation to the enrollment guidelines 
approved by the Trustees, Mrs. Rowland thanked the New Directions 
Committee for coming to the meeting and agreed with Professor Gagnon 
on the advisability of later discussion as additional information 
becomes available on statewide enrollment trends and as the 
Assembly concludes its review. 

Chairman Rowland next turned to the subject of initial 
enrollment planning considerations for the UM/Amherst campus. 

At the request of Mrs. Rowland, Mr. Cooley reviewed his 
preliminary analysis of enrollment patterns at UM/Amherst. A 
report by George Beatty, Jr., of the Analytical Studies Group at 
UM/Amherst entitled "Enrollment Reporting at the University of 



I 



COMMITTEE 



I 



I 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

Massachusetts at Amherst: A Report and Recommendations," was also 
distributed to the Committee as an additional resource for future 
discussions. Mr. Cooley then turned to some of the issues which the 
Trustees will need to consider with regard to enrollment planning 
at Amherst. One of the initial issues will be to examine the nature 
of the 25,000 student enrollment ceiling adopted by the Board in 1971 
and its relevance to future population and enrollment trends. 

He also posed the following questions: Should enrollment 
goals and patterns be based on student or FTE students? If enroll- 
ment measures are to be based on FTE students, what will be the 
impact of adopting a national standard for computing FTE? What 
should the student-mix patterns be — upper division/lower division 
ratio, ratio of graduate to undergraduate enrollment, proportion of 
part-time enrollment? Should an enrollment ceiling include or 
exclude off -campus and other forms of nontraditional enrollment? 



Mr. Cooley reported that if headcount was used as the 
basis for measuring enrollment, the Amherst campus had essentially 
reached the enrollment ceiling of 25,000. However by using other 
methods such as the national standard for FTE, headcount could go 
to 28,000 or higher. 

Chancellor Bromery commented that enrollment ceilings and 
student mixes should be determined after program planning has taken 
place. He also emphasized that except for determining dormitory 
space, headcount was of little assistance as a planning tool. He 
stated his belief that educational, enrollment and fiscal policies 
must be dealt with before enrollment targets can be set. In order 
to address the policy issues, he said, a series of questions 
involving enrollment planning should be answered, such as (1) Is 
there assumed to be no future capital expansion? (2) What is the 
limit of current facilities without impairment of quality of educa- 
tion? (3) What are the implications of alternative faculty loading? 
(4) What should the average class section size be? (5) What are the 
alternative delivery systems? (6) What effect will an enrollment 
ceiling have on transfer students, graduate students, and outreach 
students? (7) What is the effect on campus auxiliary enterprises 
such as buses, the Campus Center, sewerage? (8) What is the effect 
on regional planning? 

At the request of the Chairman, Chancellor Bromery agreed 
to submit a written list of questions which should be considered 
by the Committee. 

President Wood said that until 1970 it was expected that 
the Amherst campus might grow to a total enrollment of between 
30,000 and 40,000 students, at which time questions arose with 
regard to the environmental impact such an enrollment would have on 
the lower Pioneer Valley. This consideration led to a decision in 
1971 by the Trustees to limit the growth of the campus to 25,000. 
No attempt was made at that time to define the components of the 
25,000.

The President said that the problem at UM/Amherst is to 
determine how to maintain flexibility and enhance the academic and 
physical environment while in a "steady state." He suggested that 
the campus in conjunction with the President's Office prepare a 
series of position papers for the use of the Committee in their 
continuing discussions. 

Trustee Carlson suggested that it would be helpful to 
have an outline of the alternatives available within the present 
facilities as well as information as to the impact additional 
facilities would have on the area. 

President Wood asked Chancellor Bromery to alert all the 
campus governance bodies to the fact that studies were underway 
in order that they could have input into these recommendations. 

Turning discussion to the UM/Worcester Medical School, 
Chairman Rowland asked President Wood and Trustees Chandler and 
Spiller to report on their meeting with the Medical School Visiting 
Committee. 

President Wood opened the discussion by reviewing the 
work of the Committee to date, indicating that they had talked with 
the staff of the community hospitals in the Worcester area, the 
faculty at the Medical School, members of the Worcester community, 
the science faculty at UM/Amherst, people at Worcester Polytechnic 
Institute, Trustees, members of the staff of the President's 
Office, and Senator Kelly. 

The Committee, he said, is considering issues such as 
the relative emphasis on inpatient and outpatient services, the 
function of the hospital as a training facility, and the relation- 
ship of the hospital to the community hospitals. President Wood 
said that among the immediate contributions of the Visiting Com- 
mittee were the activation of a hospital consortium in the 
Worcester area, and the emphasis on the need to open the hospital 
on schedule. 

Trustee Spiller had earlier reported his reaction to his 
meeting with the Visiting Committee, and Trustee Chandler reinforcec 
his remarks, adding that he had hoped the Visiting Committee could 
be of assistance to the Committee on Long-Range Planning in looking 
at the long-term programmatic development of the Worcester campus. 

President Wood informed the Committee that the initial 
reports of Chancellor Soutter on the Medical School departments and 
Dr. Wheeler on the teaching hospital had been provided to the 
Visiting Committee, and copies were distributed to the Long-Range 
Planning Committee.

It was the sense of the meeting that the December 16 
meeting of the Committee should deal with the planning for the 
Hospital and the Medical School. 

Vice President Robinson suggested that the five-year plans 
for UM/Amherst and UM/Boston might be the subject for an expanded 
meeting of the Committee in January, and President Wood suggested 
that this meeting might be extended to a day or a day and a half. 
Vice President Lynton suggested that the Faculty and Educational 
Policy and Executive Committees could profit by sharing in dis- 
cussion of the Teaching Hospital and Medical School plans.

The meeting was called to order at 10:10 a.m. Chairman 
Knowles directed the Committee's attention to the last item on the 
agenda, schematic drawings for Project U67-4, Physical Education 
Building 120 on the Boston Campus (Doc. T75-058) . Assistant 
Chancellor Rawn opened the presentation by citing four key charac- 
teristics of the design: (1) there will be access from ground level 
to plaza level to facilitate community access; (2) the building will 
be participation-oriented rather than spectator-oriented; and (3) 
the building will have one major entrance point for all users and 
spectators to minimize security problems. Chairman Pumphret asked 
if the facility was principally designed for the use of students, 
and Mr. Rawn said yes. 

Mr. Rawn asked Mr. Notter of Anderson Notter Associates 
to describe the design in detail. Mr. Notter did so, citing as 
key assets the spreading of the three building segments to achieve 
the best use of space. He said the design fits within the square

foot limits successfully and into the budget set by the Trustees. 

Trustee Troy asked how large the entrance point would be, 
with special reference to the handling of large crowds. Mr. Notter 
replied that the entrance point can be widened to 20 feet if 
necessary. Several Trustees, including the Chairman, expressed 
concern about the efficiency of the single access point. In 
response to a question from the President, Mr. Notter explained that 
crowd flow analyses had been done. Trustee Chandler suggested a 
more flexible system like that used on the Massachusetts Turnpike. 
President Wood said that such an alternative method would be looked 
into. 

Chairman Pumphret expressed the view that pressure for 
intercollegiate sports would inevitably develop in time, and that 
the 3500-seat capacity of the gym might prove inadequate. He said 
he thought the Committee must try to anticipate the future in this 
respect, rather than to tailor the design to funds currently avail- 
able. 

President Wood referred to the necessity of working 
within the budget limitations, but assured Chairman Pumphret that 
no final go-ahead could be given to the project until various impact 
studies were completed. 

Trustee Carlson remarked that a gym suitable for large- 
scale spectator sports would be a different type from that under 
consideration. Chancellor Bromery said that the Boyden Gymnasium 
at Amherst was similar to the proposed UM/Boston gym, and observed 
that a gym for intercollegiate sports could not be financed by 
capital outlay. Mr. Rawn said that, though there appeared to be 
differences of opinion at the campus on the subject of inter- 
collegiate sports, the campus philosophy had favored a participatory 
type of gym. He also said that there are enough seats in the gym 
for intercollegiate sports. If UM/Boston were to develop a number- 
one team, however, an arena such as Boston Garden would be needed. 
In the meantime, the present design would accommodate both partici- 
patory athletics and a variety of nonathletic events, such as com- 
mencement and well-known speakers. President Wood explained that 
the campuses bear primary responsibility for development of 
academic athletic programs, but when a project reaches the point of 
being an issue of cost-based design, it is handled through the 
President's Office. 

Further discussion of this issue followed, during which 
Vice President Robinson compared the current design with that pro- 
posed several years earlier. She said that the gross area of the 
project had been reduced by a third, and the total cost by 50%. 

Ms. Flannery asked about plans for locker space with 
regard to the needs of both men and women, and raised the question

of how Title IX would affect sports programs in the building. 
Chairman Knowles seconded this concern, and Mr. Notter mentioned 
that the modular design made it possible to be flexible thus 
adapting the space according to need. President Wood said his 
office would take note of Ms. Flannery's concern. 

A motion was made and seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board of Trustees approve 
the Schematic Design for Building 120 (the 
gymnasium) at UM/Boston Harbor Campus as pre- 
sented by the architectural firm of Anderson 
Notter Associates, Boston, Massachusetts, and 
as detailed in Document T75-058. 

Vice President Robinson emphasized to the Committee that 
the vote was not meant as approval of specific budget estimates 
included in the document, and that revision and adjustment would 
continue. 

Chairman Knowles turned to the next item, the Request 
for Motorist Aid Antenna on Mt . Toby Lookout Tower (Doc. T75-059) . 
Mr. Littlefield recapitulated the document, saying that the 
Department of Public Works seeks the Trustees' permission to erect 
such an antenna as a relay station for its network of motorists' 
aid call boxes on Interstate 91. After short discussion, and 
upon motion made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To recommend to the Board of Trustees that it 

authorize the Chancellor of the Amherst campus, 
or those designated by him, to prepare the 
necessary instruments to license the Department 
of Public Works of the Commonwealth to enter 
upon the lands of the University at Mount Toby 
in Franklin County for the purpose of installing, 
maintaining and operating the Motorist Aid 
Signal Relay Installation on Route 1-91; 
further, that Treasurer Kenneth W. Johnson shall 
be empowered and authorized to execute all 
instruments for and in behalf of the Trustees 
of the University in furtherance of these matters. 

Chairman Knowles turned to the proposed emergency fuel 
fund transfer to meet the Amherst campus's FY 1975 Utility 
Deficiency (Doc. T75-060) . Mr. Littlefield, Director of Planning 
for the Amherst campus, cited the doubling and tripling of fuel 
prices as support for the need for this transfer. A brief dis- 
cussion followed about the possible need for more such transfers, 
and about the technical details involved. Upon motion made and 
seconded, it was

VOTED ; To recommend that the Board of Trustees 
authorize the transfer of $1.25 million 
from Account 01 to Account 08 for the 
Amherst campus. This transfer is needed 
to meet existing cash flow requirements 
in the 08 account and the transfer can 
only be considered as an emergency and 
temporary action. 

The next item on the agenda was the FY 1976 Capital Outlay 
Report (Doc. T75-061) . President Wood informed the Committee that 
the document before them was a draft copy of the capital outlay 
request. Reviewing the recent history of the subject, he said the 
campuses had been asked in August 1974 to revise and update their 
capital outlay requirement estimates in order of priority. The 
report was the result of their responses, he said, and added that 
it would require further amendment . 

The President laid stress on the importance of making the 
University's requirements known without regard to the possible 
action by external review agencies. The outgoing administration 
had discouraged any capital outlay presentation. 

Dr. Gartenberg informed the Committee that the report, 
with whatever modifications are made, will serve as preliminary 
notification to the BHE of the University's capital outlay require- 
ments. He said the campuses had also been asked to prepare a 
more detailed report, based upon the summary, for presentation to 
the new administration in January.

ees for its approval. Chancellor Soutter said they 

be, and added that equipment in the present request 
in that category.

and it was

She reported to the Committee that Chancellor Soutter had written 
to her asking whether the proposed policy (and standing practice)

of naming buildings only for deceased persons would also apply to 
major spaces of buildings, such as the Medical School Library. It 
was the consensus of the Committee, as evinced by subsequent dis- 
cussion, that the policy ought to apply to parts of buildings as 
well as to entire buildings, though extraordinary exceptions could 
be made. 

Chairman Knowles underscored the importance of getting 
suggestions from the campuses for building names and called 
attention to her memorandum to the campuses to that effect. Mrs. 
Robinson added that it was important that the Board have more than 
one suggestion for a building. President Wood agreed with both 
points, and proposed that the Secretary send a letter to the 
campuses inquiring about their progress in gathering suggestions. 

There being no further business to come before the 
Committee, the meeting was adjourned at 11:45 a.m.
